Creating in Japan

From November 2017 to January 2018, Marie-Denise spent six weeks in Japan, and visited major cities, Osaka, Nagoya, Tokyo and Kyoto and smaller places, Kobe, Nara, Kurashiki, Naoshima, Miyajima and many more…The wonderful landscapes, temples, castles, museums and the elegance and beauty of the Japanese women inspired the artist to create a series of watercolors and ink drawings which I entitled Kreol-Nippon, where the brush stroke becomes a predominant element of gesture.
