Zen Aesthetics: Artwork by Rosemary Goodell, on view August 2 - September 27
Join us on Friday, August 2 from 5-8 p.m. to experience the art of Rosemary Goodell. Explore Wabi-sabi, the aesthetic defined as the beauty of things "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete." In Zen philosophy there are seven aesthetic principles for achieving Wabi-Sabi: irregularity, simplicity, weathered, natural, subtle, tranquil, and unbounded by convention. The characteristics of Japanese art, line, flat color, pattern and asymmetrical balance are elements that inspire and complement Rosemary Goodell's paintings.
The desire to preserve a tradition of peace and beauty and a reverence for nature is exhibited in both the Japanese spiritual and aesthetic life. The transmission of these values, as well as Japan's artistic tradition, aesthetically informs Goodell's art, while the subjects are of personal expressions on current events, family relationships, reflections on nature, and personal beliefs.
