SOLO Exhibition

Nobuyo Sakakibara

the beginning of a new world

We all have wings to ourselves, but it is only those with dreams who learn to fly in the sky with them.
Now the new year 2022 begins. It is time for us to break out from the long-lasted moment of silence
and fly toward a new world.

My artworks are created by using natural stones including crystals and powdered shells. Their light-
drenched beauty shines out into the universe.

Her paintings are characterized by expressions of color and a graceful style that make use of her experience of growing up in a land rich in nature.
Nobuyo graduated from Nagoya Institute of Art and Design where she majored in Japanese painting. She has been making Japanese paintings for over 30 years. Since 1988 she has presented at numerous solo exhibitions, group exhibitions, and public exhibitions.

A member of the Aichi Art and Culture Association and of other art groups as well, she is also a jury member for art exhibitions. Her Japanese paintings use ancient, time-honored Japanese art materials – rock paint made by crushing natural ore and colored glass, gemstones, used with Japanese paper, glue and water. Nobuyo paints love and beauty. Her paintings are colorfully expressed by borrowing the figures of flowers and people. From her paintings, one can feel a connection with the unwavering force from ancient times, the flow of time, and the expanse of space. Nobuyo’s unique Japanese paintings have charmed and delighted people from all over the world.
