Kintsugi in Japan, beauty in the flaw - oct 2019

Kintsugi with glass art highlight the metaphor of life: fragile and strong at the same time. It emphasizes the beauty in the broken: when something is damaged, it makes it more beautiful. 

In Japan, broken objects are often repaired with gold: it is called Kintsugi. The flaw is seen as a unique piece of the object’s history, which adds to its beauty. Creating art with glass panels and reverse painting questions the meaning of life. This japonese philosophy, where broken objects are often repaired with gold explains that the flaw is seen as a unique piece of the object’s history, which adds to its beauty.

The Kintsugi experience I had in Tokyo was made possible by “Kuge Craft”, the couple has been doing Kintsugi and pottery art for 35 years!!

CAPTURE FESTIVAL - opening April 17th 2018 with Douglas C W Kennedy


Curiosity is part of human nature. Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going?, painted by Paul Gauguin, could be considered the inspiring element that brought together Douglas C.W. Kennedy and Aurelia Bizouard. Both create images of the body superimposed with paintings and photographs of nature and architecture, images that reflect the human soul. Delightful images, dreamy images, and universally intriguing images reveal timelessness and infinity. Images on black and white photographic paper highlight this phenomenon of existence we all share.
WHERE: RAILTOWN STUDIOS - 321 Railway St, Vancouver
From 6 to 8 pm
