MOMENT: A New Book by Satsuki Shibuya & Exhibition Announcement
Moment: A New Book by Artist Satsuki Shibuya
Dream-like watercolor paintings and simple, emotionally resonating words invite readers to reconnect with the present moment.
Los Angeles (August 19, 2016) -- California-based artist and spiritual thinker Satsuki Shibuya has announced her latest endeavor in cultivating love, peace, and harmony through her work: Moment, scheduled for release on December 15, 2016, is a hardcover book that weaves together Satsuki’s ethereal watercolor paintings with her simple yet poignant words. Offering poetic insight on themes such as following the heart and human existence, Moment provides an interlude for those who seek to take a step back, breathe, and shift perspectives, or perhaps even embark on a journey of self-discovery.
“My hope is that this book will be a catalyst to connect back to the essence of life. A gentle reminder to cherish all the abundance that is right in front of our eyes —for that is where happiness can be found,” explained author Satsuki Shibuya. “We can neither live in the past or future for all happens in the present, yet, one is able to live simultaneously in the past, present, and future, if in the moment.”
Poems, verses, and short passages will be featured in both English and Japanese, accompanied by a collection of new artwork created exclusively for this volume.
With a KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN set to launching on September 15 to fund the project, as well as a workshop and events in the weeks leading up to its release, Moment promises to foster new connections and discoveries extending well beyond its pages.
