MAYUMI AMADA EXHIBITION
Monday, Jan. 13 - Friday, Feb. 14
Mayumi Amada’s Japanese cultural heritage is interwoven into the work she creates. Amada explores how reusable materials echo concepts from Buddhism and Zen philosophies. The concepts of “reuse” and “recycle” contain the meaning of “rebirth” and “giving new life,” and Amada’s artwork is focused on a circle of life and eternity in mortality. Practicing repeated stitches and patterns, Amada explores the repetition of generations handed down through lacework and doilies.
