In this new exhibition, Japanese artist Takeru Amano - born in Tokyo in 1977 - expresses, through paintings of bucolic yet dripping landscapes and glistening diamonds, his feelings toward the beauty of nature shattered by the impact of mankind. With a particular perspective after the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and subsequent tsunami and Fukushima nuclear disaster, Amano explores the way we treat our environment and, often, arm it. Behind his idyllic mountain and lake landscapes lays the traces of our presence. His diamonds paintings represent the wealth that nature gives humans yet they bear traces of mistreatment, highlighting differently the way we treat mother nature.
