Watercolor, crayon and colored pencil on paper | 2021
In this new series from LA-based artist Satsuki Shibuya, elegant brushstrokes dance across the paper in a meditation on human nature. Rendered in watercolor, crayon, and colored pencil, “Capturing Light” is a reflection of her iconic style that has been featured in Vogue and Kinfolk. The artist writes poems as a way to express the motivation and purpose of the works she creates, and offered the following to accompany this new series.
As we enter a new era of light,
humanity must awaken to their true nature,
shared among all who inhabit our World,
not just for the taking,
but of communion with one another,
whether animate or inanimate,
as all contain fragments of life,
none holier than the other.
Let us bring peace by recognizing
the fragility of life,
and on a deeper level,
the preciousness of our existence as a whole.
