The Kirkland Arts Center current exhibition, “Slash and Burn”, features Japanese artists Naoko Morisawa and June Sekiguchi among the eight local artists represented.
The exhibit started on Dec. 12 and runs through Jan. 30.
“Slash-and-burn” is an agricultural method that involves cutting and burning off all vegetation on a plot of land to regenerate the earth. The processes of devastation, deforestation, and erosion give way to fertility and renewal, allowing new crops to grow.
In Slash and Burn, artists give birth to new creations by harnessing the same destructive power of flame and blade as creative acts. (end)
