Lynn Matsuoka's new equestrian works will debut in the Bruce Lurie Gallery at ArtHamptons this July. Matsuoka has had a long art career in Japan and her talents can now be found in the Hamptons.

This collection is defined by powerful, lyrical lines and is meant to look and feel real. Many of the works on are hand-made rice paper, which adds quality and depth. Her art is meant to embody the entire subject, not just by sight, but over-all.

Matsuoka grew up in the New York and studied with Jack Potter at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. She moved to Japan for a job opportunity that was supposed to last six months, and never returned home. She fell in love with the sumo culture there. Matsuoka spent most of her time in Japan behind the scenes at the sumo rings, documenting the wrestlers with a quick hand and master memory.

She loved her sumo drawings but decided to move to the Hamptons in 2007, to be with her children who were born in Japan, but moved to the Hamptons.

Matsuoka found herself attracted to drawing horses because they are everywhere in the Hamptons. She would go to her friend's stables and sit there and draw and she found that she was good at it, and really liked it.

ArtHamptons is being held Thursday, July 2nd through Sunday, July 7th.
