Event Description

Sumire Sugisaki grew up in Saitama, Japan, just east of Tokyo. Her work is multi-faceted; she is a painter, healer, and also a designer of an original style of jewelry called “Marakah.” Through her art, Sugisaki maintains some influence from her formative years as a child immersed in a world of daydreams and also as a teenager troubled by a discomfort she felt in expressing herself. During these years, in search of a truer sense of self, she turned towards the spiritual world. While also cultivating her passion for painting, music and other forms of art, she explored meditation. This allowed her to make contact with a truer sense of her being and also something greater. When she meditated, she could feel herself opening up to the presence of light and the guiding of spirits. She made it her mission then to better understand these spirits and communicate that with the world.
In July of 2010 she completed a spiritual healing course in Nakameguro, Tokyo at Dynavision.co, where she also held her first solo exhibition. United by a spiritual theme, her representative work depicts the Guan Yin Goddess of Mercy. Through her art she conveys the message that spirits exist to watch over us.
“When I begin painting, I don't know what will unfold on the canvas,” she says. For her, making art in that manner is similar to a healing session. On a large wooden board, she uses acrylic paint to depict what she has seen in meditation, the messages she has received. Depending on the piece, this process can take a few months or just thirty minutes to complete. Still, every single piece contains the healing power over that place, people and problems.
As a healer, Sugisaki channels the guardian angels, existing to to protect her clients as both a master and spiritual guide. She is an artist in the process of creating a single portrait of the world. Sugisaki says, "our guides are always sending us the messages we need just as we need them. To everyone who sees these pictures, I hope you will feel the Shining Light Within You.” Her next solo exhibition will be held in Setagaya, Tokyo at the Star Poets Gallery in March of 2012.
