This event has ended.
Kikuchi’s practice is a rare combination of cloisonne ware and Nihonga. Her characters, rendered as cloisonné figures, possess a luster and transparency that glimmers with the light of living things. They are supported by a gentle atmosphere borne from backgrounds painted with mineral pigments.
By creating objects where these two divergent techniques co-exist, Kikuchi’s goal is to “create a miniature universe within each artwork”. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition.
