Shaped by training in traditional Japanese arts and informed by contemporary concerns, Oda’s “Goddesses” interprets the Buddhist pantheon with a feminine flair. Vibrant compositions, at times reminiscent of Japan’s Rimpa arts, bring to life an array of icons from household gods to Buddhism’s supreme deities.
