Kennedy-Douglass Center for the Arts presents Abstraction in Realism: Watercolors by Yuri Ozaki, an exhibit by Huntsville watercolor artist, Yuri Ozaki February 15 – March 30.  Ozaki’s soft, complex watercolors have such intimate detail they dive into the depths of abstraction. Join us for her gallery talk, Monday night, February 19 at 6PM.
Yuri Ozaki grew up in a small town in Mie Prefecture on the Kii Peninsula of Japan. The area is known for its unique wet climate and mystical history. This area also features UNESCO World Heritage registered sacred sites and pilgrimage routes. The beauty and mystery of her home region has been a strong influence on Ozaki’s work.
Her favorite subjects have been woodland scenes in the Tennessee Valley as well as her coastal hometown in Japan. Most recently, she has been experimenting with her own imaginary world based on scenes of decay and renewal in nature. She feels connected to her subjects through the texture of watercolor on paper.
Ozaki has been accepted to several national juried shows since 2010 where she has garnered several awards. She is a signature member of the Watercolor Society of Alabama and North East Watercolor Society. (yuriozaki.com)
