Gallery III:
Katsura Okada, 
The Re-Origin: After the last first

This is the the second solo exhibition at A.I.R. Gallery by alumnae member artist Katsura Okada. With this exhibition, Okada continues to explore rice paper as a medium, forming thin rolls into long flowing forms and delicate sculptural bundles. Katsura Okada draws inspiration from "all experiences - happiness, sadness, anger, pain, beauty and ugliness all influence my work and mature my mind, to be expressed perhaps ten years later." The Re-Origin: After the Last First specifically contemplates the effects of nuclear weapons and radioactive contamination on Japan. Playing with light, color, and textural sensitivity, Okada describes The Re-Origin: After the Last First as a kind of prayer for the health and safety of the people of Japan and people all over the world, and as expressive of her hopes - that the first use of nuclear weapons in warfare will be the last "first."
