Before the cherry blossom season is an artwork belonging to Rie Kono’s collection.
The dance of women. The party is the subject of this work. Women who are preparing to celebrate with trays full of food. A propitiatory dance? The arrival of spring? We do not know. The author leaves the interpretation to the imagination of the viewer. From the twirling of birds and an egg in a cage, everything foreshadows the arrival of the new season. Spring. Rebirth and flowering season. Where the cold colors of winter give way to green and the first flowers. Here is Rie Kono’s positive philosophy, to dream, to see everything under a pink lens. Do not miss its trademark: the hot air balloon that dominates, but does not dominate. In the background, the Fuji is the sacred mountain par excellence for the Japanese people.
