Solo Show by Japanese Painter TOMOKO SEKO

Japanese painter Tomoko Seko, who has recently completed her MA at Chelsea College of Art and Design, will give a solo show at Burgh House and Hampstead Museum, showing her recent work exploring the power of nature.

Originally from Shizuoka in Japan, Tomoko came to the UK to further her studies in painting. The power of nature has always inspired her and has been a main theme of her paintings, but the five years she spent in this county in such a culturally diverse environment has added new aspects on her work. She has become more acutely aware of her own cultural identity and it has made her re-examine the importance of Eastern thought of Zen on Japanese art, in which she found her own important cultural roots. She has applied the technique of Zen painting into her recent work. Utilising powerful, spontaneous, richly toned and flowing black lines of Japanese ink accompanied by colourful background, her paintings depict the power of nature.
