ABSTRACT
The article describes the series of paintings by Japanese artist Tomiyama Taeko following the disaster, an earthquake, tsunami and nuclear power meltdown, that struck northeastern Japan on March 11, 2011. In "Revelation From the Sea: Tsunami," Taeko depicts divine guardian deities rising out of the dark, angry sea. In "Fukushima: Spring of Caesium-137," Taeko shows particles of Caesium-137 being scattered by a demon-like god along with seasonal cherry blossoms over land and sea. In "Japan: Nuclear Power Plant," Taeko interprets the wreckage of the Fukushima Daiichi power plant. In "Crisis: Prayer for Sea and Sky," Taeko features the god of thunder, lightning and storms warning people about the wrath of natural and man-made disasters.
