Le Petit Bateau art collective is pleased to invite readers to the opening exhibition of the talented artist HARUYO MORITA on Saturday 11th February, between 7 pm and 10 pm at the Vincent and Dupree’ Salon 248 Bronte Road, Waverley.
The title of the exhibition is Haruyo Morita : Shift From Within.
Whatever word or label we use to describe the oneness of our universe, we are all inescapably participating in it. Haruyo Morita’s works explore the connected nature of this existence, recalibrating our perception of ourselves by focusing on our spiritual similarities, whilst accepting our man-made differences.
“Just because people believe in different things, they are no better or less – we are just made differently to keep the balance in this universe.”
Haruyo’s paintings reflect this understanding by stripping away our human forms and figures to reveal the shared essence of what it actually means to be a human being below the surface.
Haruyo seeks to replace judgement, malice and confusion with a gentle understanding and calm observation. Her planetary orbs of human experience sit suspended in ethereal whiteness; peaceful, egoless and beautiful.
In a world where many resolve themselves to negative energy and the perceived drudgery of existence, Haruyo reaches for more by focusing on acceptance and embracing the poetry in everything around her.
There is no instruction on how to feel, only an effort to inspire by showing us one possibility and prompting us to make our own decision, to create the changes we desire for ourselves, from within.
Haruyo Morita is a Japanese artist who began her study of visual arts at Tajimi Technical High school (Japan) in 1994.
Morita’s passion for art soon took her around the world to further refine her style at the National Art School (Sydney) and at the ‘Villa Bastille’ Art School (Paris).
Morita is currently based in Parramatta working with Sumi (calligraphy ink) ‚ traditional mineral pigments‚ gold leaf‚ shell powder‚ acrylic and oil paints.
