The Dorothy Circus Gallery is excited to announce its latest collaboration with Japanese painter Yokoteen, who is debuting in our premise in London on April 20th, with his solo exhibition titled Blue Breeze.
This powerful exhibition showcases the joyous connection between water and life, exploring the symbolism of water in different cultures and adding a philosophical touch to this much-anticipated contemporary art event for collectors and art lovers overseas.
Yokoteen's works celebrate the beauty and serenity found in the natural world while also exploring the philosophical symbolism of water and the color blue. In his new series "Blue Breeze," the color blue and the theme of water come together to create a powerful symbol of spiritual and emotional purification.
The artist seeks to explore the meaning of water, which symbolizes purity, life, and rebirth throughout history, from ancient mythology to modern times, considered the source of all life and associated with spiritual and emotional purification in many cultures. At the same time, the color blue has been chosen as a distinctive sign by the artist, resonating with its usage and meaning in art history, which has made it a protagonist in masterpieces since ancient times, for its power to evoke the divine and spiritual.
The sacred blue, appreciated not only for its magical and hypnotic qualities but above all for its symbolic meaning, has traveled through time, passing through the hearts of painters such as Monet and Renoir, Van Gogh, and characterizes Yokoteen's fresh painting today for its transcendent qualities of nature.
Blue Breeze series portrays moments of serenity and tranquility, captured through the artist's extraordinary use of bright colours and fluid brushstrokes, conveying the theme of rebirth and purity through the use of blue and water with a sense of flow and movement that adds to the overall feeling of calmness.
The fluidity and transparency of water suggest a sense of purity and cleansing, inviting viewers to reflect on their spiritual experiences and the interconnectedness of all things.
Through the use of color, brushstrokes, and subject matter, Yokoteen's art invites viewers to step into a world of calm and reflection. The serene moments captured in the paintings encourage the viewer to take a moment to appreciate the beauty of the world and consider the deeper meanings that lie beneath the surface.
The themes of water's wisdom and memory evoked by Yokoteen's artwork take the viewer on a journey through the world of this extraordinary Japanese painter who meticulously explores the symbolism of water in all its forms with a joyful aquamarine palette that reflects the artist's technical skill and attention to detail. This exhibition is a celebration of the wisdom and beauty of water and the profound lessons it can teach about life.
The exhibition will be on display from April 20 to May 20, 2023.
