Kanno’s work is deeply inspired by the transitoriness of nature, such as the seasonal color change of the foliage and the transforming shapes of mountains and valleys over time. Since she moved to Japan, Kanno has been exploring the local gardens and forests with their vast variety of shapes and colors, which are reflected in the colors and in the compositions of her paintings and ceramic works. ………………………………………………… ARTIST BIOGRAPHY Sonja Kanno was born 1982 in Germany. Since 2011, she has been living in Tokyo, Japan. Kanno is fascinated by the transitory character of impermanent environments, which she captures in her abstract paintings and - most recently - in ceramic objects. She has previously collaborated with artists in different media, such as performance, installation and interactive art. Kanno holds a Master’s Degree in Fine Art from Hanze University Groningen, The Netherlands, where she graduated cum laude. Her artwork has been exhibited at galleries, art fairs and in public spaces.
