Mark Meenan & Yuri Kinoshita

The Oct-Nov show at Judd Creek Ranch Gallery, Structure & Light, features the work of two Seattle artists who work with bamboo and paper to create structured pieces that pull from Asian traditions with a contemporary twist.
 
Mark Meenan
Mark Meenan, American Bamboo Company owner, trained in Japan, Cambodia and Bali, and has 15 years of experience as a bamboo carpenter. He creates traditional Asian fencing, using bamboo, as it is a fast-growing renewable resource that is extremely hardy and structurally strong. He follows the footsteps of traditional Asian designed fences from over 500 years ago, then adds his own modern-day elements to create a product that will withstand the test of time.
 
Yuri Kinoshita
Born in Kyoto, Japan, Yuri graduated with honors from Osaka Fashion Institute, Department of Interior Design. After traveling throughout Europe and Asia, she settled in the U.S. to expand her artistic skills and passion for lighting design.  Now based in Seattle, Yuri works with organic materials to create small- and large-scale sculptures of ‘Interwoven Lights’.  Her site-specific installations continue to explore the interrelations of play between light and shadow within her medium.

The implements of the Japanese Tea Ceremony

 

The Japanese Tea Ceremony (Chanoyu) in its present form has been practiced since the 16th Century and is based on harmony, respect, purity and tranquility. Chanoyu, literally means “hot water for tea,” but the practice involves much more than its name implies. Chanoyu is a ritualized, secular practice and the act of preparing and drinking the powdered green tea used in the ceremony is a carefully choreographed artform requiring many years of study to master.
