RYOKO KANETA: Snow in the Summer: Dorothy Circus London | Solo Show

23 Jun - 8 Jul 2023
The Dorothy Circus Gallery in London is proud to present the UK debut of renowned Japanese painter Ryoko Kaneta, with her extraordinary series titled "Snow in The Summer”, an artistic testament that reveals the bittersweet scenario of environmental crisis and climate change through enchanting landscapes.
Composed by 13 acrylic paintings on canvas, Kaneta's new exhibition represents an artistically powerful and contemporary body of work. Through her refined and deeply spiritual poetics, inspired by ancient Japanese philosophies, the artist highlights a growing concern for our planet and its fragility.
Nature has always been at the center of Kaneta's work, but now more than ever, her pieces confront us with the reality of a humanity often indifferent to the devastation it causes, ignoring natural needs and rhythms. Kaneta's sensitivity is reflected in her personification of Nature, depicted as mountains and waves with gentle, yet sometimes angry, eyes that gaze at us with a tinge of sadness.
Through her art, Kaneta invites us to reflect on our collective responsibility to preserve and protect the planet we call home. The paintings, from a perspective that seems to watch over us from above, reveal the fragile beauty of the natural world and confront us with the consequences of our irresponsible actions.
The Dorothy Circus Gallery has chosen to showcase "Snow in The Summer" at the beginning of summer, not by chance, with the intention of offering not only an exciting artistic experience but, above all, to stimulate deep reflection as we approach summer travels, urging us to consider our choices and our impact on the environment.
The exhibition will open with a private viewing dedicated to collectors on June 23 at 5:30 PM and will be open to the public until July 31 at the Dorothy Circus Gallery in London, located at 35 Connaught Street, W22AZ.
