ASIA WEEK 2013 NEW YORK SHOWCASE

ASIA WEEK  2013  NEW YORK took place March 15 through March 23rd. Too many things to admire – I will highlight one very old and one very recent work of art.
I am always impressed how Japanese artists seem to flourish and continue their legacy and at the same time develop something  with a modern vision.
This purple temmoku-glazed incense burner produced in 2012 by Japanese artist KAMADA KOJI shows how old techniques from one thousand years ago originally imported  from China were made popular among Japanese tea aficionados during the Muromachi  period. The artist has re-invented this technique in a modern style.  Kamada Koji was one of several artists exhibiting at Joan Mirviss Gallery – Seven Sages of Ceramics –  Modern Japanese  Masters.KOJI

Jonathan Tucker Antonia Tozer Asian Art showing Gandharan art. This is a 4th-5th century stucco head of Buddha — reminding  us  how the Buddha image was influenced by Greek and Indian style elements before developing into the later Buddha figures we now find on the market  and admire.
