A new book by Satsuki Shibuya Presented at Show + Tell Projects in collaboration with Tappan. The hardcover book 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.
Satsuki Shibuya says
“My hope is that this book will be a catalyst to connect us 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.”
Presented in tandem with her exhibition of original paintings included in the book, this publication weaves together Satsuki’s ethereal watercolor paintings with her simple yet poignant words. Dream-like watercolor paintings and simple, emotionally resonating words invite readers to reconnect with the present 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.
Satsuki Shibuya journeys through the metaphysical qualities of the universe by contemplating both the tangible and illusive aspects of nature, energy, and the human experience. Shibuya’s watercolor paintings are havens for introspection, seeking to evoke a sense collective harmony among viewers. The expansive white border has a meditative quality, focusing the viewer on the delicate features of the form.
Our artist programs facilitate exhibitions with galleries, independent exhibition spaces, and the Tappan Atelier, offering the opportunity for artists to showcase their work in the physical realm.
