Studio Kura on the Japanese Island of Khyshu

Helen Brown on her Artist’s Residency and forthcoming exhibition

Helen spoke about the highlights of her trip, which included many Japanese gardens that she visited. These gardens do not have to be re-planted or re-landscaped, therefore they are maintained in their original form, even from over 100 years ago.

Helen was so inspired by these gardens, that aspects of them are incorporated into her work. During this particular artistic trip, Helen used inks on traditional Japanese paper made locally to studio Kura on Khyshu. There are only a few small scale family firms that produce this paper; using the same techniques that were used over 300 year ago.

Did you know, there is a Japanese garden in Hammersmith? Keep an eye on our coming up page; we may be visiting it soon!
