“The Art of Living: Orinotawashi” is an exhibit from artists Norio and Chifumi, who happen to be husband and wife. Using their different specialized skills, Noria and Chifumi come together and express themselves through making collages.
Norio is the inspiration behind the art, he is the one who finds the ideas while Chifumi creates the art through her background in product design. “Orinotawashi ‘s collage is not only paper and acrylics … Journey, encounters, history, culture, and destiny are also used as materials. They incorporate their life in a collage, too. They use various techniques and present their work as paintings, figures, clothes, a mud house or a book.” It was very surreal going through this exhibit and seeing art that was created by husband and wife- seeing all the different colors, shapes and materials they used to portray their life and experiences.
