Negative space. The Japanese Concept of Ma Through Pigment Abstraction 

Artist: Colin Edward Toews

Sunday, August 27 – Thursday, November 23

Negative space. The Japanese concept of ma through pigment abstraction is an art exhibit that emphasizes the importance of taking the time to stop and hit the pause button in our busy and at times overwhelming day to day lives. 

The minimalist aesthetic is inspired by the Japanese concept of ma in which the empty space holds just as much relevance as the rest of the artwork and creates a focal point for the viewer to pause, take a deep breath, and organize their thoughts.
