Looking East - Max Watters Collection

Works from the Max Watters Collection influenced by the culture and symbology of the East are brought together in Looking East.


John Plapp’s work Floating Through Nara celebrates the teachings of Shinto and the beauty of symmetry, while John Peart’s Abstract, inspired by calligraphic practices, explores the artistic expression of human language.
Setsuko Ogishi relates her practice to her Japanese heritage stating that ‘Traditional Japanese art and customs are important influences in my work.’ In her medium of glass blowing, she echoes ideas of light combined with colour forms creating a sense of movement and elegance.

Looking East shares with the audience the imagery of ancient traditions through a contemporary lens paying homage to the wisdom of Eastern cultures.
