Sato Sakura Museum is pleased to present the exhibition Water—Flowing—Contemporary Japanese Paintings. The serene flow of the clear blue water will enrich visitors’ hearts and minds. Water circulates and flows in diverse forms within the natural world, including rain, streams, waterfalls, lakes, rivers, and oceans. These are not separate entities, but are instead the different forms of water circulating the earth over the years. This exhibition features the museum’s works focusing on the circulation of water. Through the exhibition, visitors will immerse themselves in the unceasing flow of water, as portrayed in artworks featuring the rhythmic drizzle of rain, the awe-inspiring descent of waterfalls, the serene movement of rivers, and vivid depictions of splashing waves in the sea. We invite you to indulge in the refreshing sight of cool blue water during the hot summer season.
