We are pleased to present our oil painting exhibition of UK and Japanese landscapes. 20 large works will be exhibited. For each painting, we set up our easel in the location of the subject to be painted. We think that with this exhibition you can taste the difference of the scenery between the two countries that may not be observed if it is not a painting. For us, to produce an oil painting we must actually set up our easel in the location of the object of interest rather than bringing the object into the studio. We achieve this through the relationship of body and space. It is essential for us to place our body directly in the space we are painting. This exhibition will be held in a public hall next to Blockley C of E Primary School where our daughter and son attend school. The students will come to view our work. We will hold a course on the method of the procedure and the idea of the painting process for the grade-schoolers on the first day of exhibition. Additionally, we will do a course on paper foldings by my daughter as a cultural exchange.
