Circles Japan Trip Day Two: A visit to UNESCO World Heritage Site, Fushimi Inari Taisha, a unique site among Japanese Shinto Shrines, where a pathway of 10,000 vermillion-colored torii gates stretch 2.5 miles up the hillside. Next stop was to Ginkakuji, the Silver Pavillion, formerly known as Jishojo. We then moved onward to Saihoji Moss Temple. For our final stop we visited Japanese contemporary artist Kohei Nawa’s studio. Photos could not be taken at his studio as sculptures for an upcoming exhibition were in the process of being created. Nawa is known for his PixelCell series and recently, his large scale installation “Thrown” was on view in the Louvre Pyramid from July 2018 to February 2019.

Eugenie Shonnard, an artist who trained with European masters, sculpted busts and forms from her love of New Mexican diversity. An innovator by nature, she developed her own sculptural material of lightweight cement she called Keenstone while also working in a variety of techniques popularized in the 20th century.

Having first visited New Mexico at the invitation of Edgar Lee Hewett, she returned to make Santa Fe her home, where she produced busts of Native peoples and commissioned many religious sculptures for churches and chapels.
