This exhibition of works by Jenny Sanzaro-Nishimura is a tribute to the people and cultures of Asia and the Pacific Islands. It also includes works from a collaboration with Glennys Briggs titled Genocidal Tendencies.

 

These works reflect my long held infatuation with other cultures, especially Asia and the Pacific Islands—the art, the food, the languages and their beliefs. From early in my printmaking practice I began incorporating symbols, characters and artifacts from Asia and Egypt into my works and I continue to use them to this day. Living on the largest Island in the Pacific and visiting a number of the Pacific Islands over the years has also brought the influence of ‘island life’ into my work.

 

Jenny Sanzaro-Nishimura has been a printmaker for over twenty years. She lectures in Printmedia at Queensland College of Art, Griffith University, where she received a Doctoral degree. Her passion for printmaking began prior to her undergraduate degree and has never waned. She loves the technical processes involved and sees printmaking as medium that can reach a very broad audience and be taken into almost any other art discipline. Jennifer Sanzaro-Nishimura was president of Impress Print Studios in Brisbane.

Fragments & Empire examines Cambodian (or Khmer) art of the Angkor Empire, which dominated much of mainland Southeast Asia from the ninth through the fifteenth centuries. It includes examples of sandstone architectural fragments, ceremonial bronzes, and stoneware vessels associated with the styles of the imperial capital as well as their transmission into peripheral regions in modern-day northeastern Thailand.

This exhibition highlights and brings together for the first time the collection of Cambodian art from the John Young Museum of Art (JYMA) and a significant portion of John Young’s collection from the Honolulu Museum of Art (HMA). It offers an opportunity to study the historical works as a comprehensive collection. Twenty-four artworks from the JYMA and eleven digital images from the HMA are featured. The digital images will be viewable on electronic tablets.

This exhibition is curated by Kristin Remington as part of her MA thesis in South and Southeast Asian art history.
