The characters for 光明院 Komyo-in refer to moonlight, so this was the perfect place to exhibit my Moon and Luminosity series.
Forty works were exhibited throughout the temple, opening a beautiful Shigemori Mirei garden. Screens, scrolls, paintings, and the paperworks in the Luminosity series were shown on the first floor. A gallery of intimate works was on the second floor.
In the main meditation hall (Hondo), there was a unique Luminosity gallery where viewers witnessed this series in different lighting conditions. The exhibit had a timed entrance with a musical soundtrack and special lighting. The exhibition expressed the light that resided within us and was particularly timely with the pandemic.
