Marquette artist embraces Japanese concept of “wabi-sabi”
You can check out Taryn Okesson’s collection at Zero Degrees Gallery through the end of June
MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - There’s a new artist on display at Zero Degrees Gallery. Taryn Okesson is the gallery’s guest artist for the month of June.
Using ink, acrylic, and linen/thread, Okesson creates finely detailed and textured mixed-media work.
TV6′s Tia Trudgeon stops by the Downtown Marquette gallery to learn more about the artist and her creative process.
Okesson embraces the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi, or, the aesthetic concept that finds beauty and serenity in objects/landscapes that are imperfect, simple, or incomplete.
That’s evident in the rough textures, edges, and loose threads in Okesson’s final pieces.
Zero Degrees Gallery is hosting an artist’s reception for Taryn Okesson on June 10th from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
