2014 East Bay Open Studios Artist: Kanna Aoki

“Like those assertive painters of the Bay Area School, Aoki has a bold sense of color. Laying down swaths of blues, purples, and yellows, her brushstrokes bring to life our region’s glow. Aoki underpaints with an orange that seeps through the images, generating the fading warmth of autumnal light or the retina burn of summer.” – Timothy Buckwalter, The East Bay Monthly
