Maine artist, Ramona du Houx, is in a current group exhibition in Tokyo, Japan, from May 7th to the 19th and at the Constellation Gallery in Portland, Maine, throughout May.

Anat Parnass, Ramona du Houx, Suzanne Mooney and Takafumi Suzuki, are all members of the Creative Artist Group showing at the Tokyo Gallery Storks show entitled: The Beauties & Beast.

Ramona’s photographic fine art in the exhibit tells the story of a bird who transforms as the avian experiences the seasons.

“Modern society plugs us into the Internet and that can open doors but sometimes too much of being Internet connected disconnects us from the mysteries of the natural world that can be transformational. I want to show how nature’s interconnectedness can lead us to discoveries about our world and ourselves,” said Ramona du Houx.

The young bird awakens to nature’s energy more in the summer, shown in the photo Wake Up.

Finally, the bird transforms into energy – in the photo Transformation Flight. Continue reading

Now, to help heal the still open wound he is exhibiting those images in Even now— I miss you! at Gallery Storks in the art district of Tokyo, Japan. Continue reading
