Joyce Rudolph, Weekend

BURBANK -- Kunimi Terada is an artist who paints what she sees and

feels with color and shape.

"The act of looking has always filled me with profound pleasure," she

said. "I am constantly surprised by what I see -- a landscape, human

body, shapes in the Earth under my feet, piles of autumn leaves, the wind

pushing clouds away from my window frame.


"When I create, the subtleties of color become vividly transformed

when they begin to interact -- what a joyful experience!"

Terada's work is on display at the Aries Gallery. Her work is

displayed along with gallery owner Fred Wolf and Peggy Nichols.

Wolf's art emphasizes compositional challenges in figurative


Nichols, who paints still life paintings in pastels, gains inspiration

from Cezanne, Mary Cassatt and Degas.

Continuing through May 8, the exhibit is by appointment only. The

gallery is at 4222 W. Burbank Blvd. For more information or reservations,

call 846-0611.
