Ma 'the space between'

Artists reception: Friday Jan. 31, from 6:00 to 9:00 pm

Exhibition dates: January 31 to February 23, 2014

A two person exhibition featuring ceramist, Akira Satake,and textile artist Barbara Zaretsky exploring the japanese concept of 'Ma' - "What is not there becomes, in its absence - as important to the meaning of the piece as what remains."

Ceramist Akira Satake and textile artist Barbara Zaretsky have created a harmonious body of work that exemplifies the visual expression of the concept in a two person exhibition at Eno Gallery.

The Japanese Concept of 'ma'
In Japanese, the word ma (pronounced 'maah') expresses a principal that's rarely articulated in Western art: an awareness of form and non-form as equally significant. In music, it may be the space between notes, in drama, a pause between lines.

Inherent to the expression of ma, says Zaretsky, is "the appearance of effortlessness" That elusive quality can be read as simplicity, but differs from minimalism. Rather than achieving a stark, static affect, Satake says "using ma as a guiding principal reveals the inner life or energy, of the piece."

Think of a Ma as the space between... Pots are formed from clay, though the space inside them is the essence of the pot. Walls with windows and doors form the house, but it is the space within them that is the essence of the house.

Where there is clutter, even valuable things lose their value. Where there is too much, nothing stands out. Satake and Zaretsky understand the importance of negative space which surrounds an object. Its use has a dramatic impact on the mood and tone of their finished work.

Location: Eno Gallery, 100 S. Churton St, Hillsborough, NC
