We are pleased to announce the Yoshimura Emi exhibition "Early Summer Fukiyose" from June 2 (Thu) to 11 (Sat), 2022.
For her first solo exhibition in Tokyo, she will exhibit her wax-dyed and dyed works in various colors and shapes in a single space.
Each piece is a one-of-a-kind wax-dyed piece, created by selecting white fabrics, mixing dyes, and taking time to dye them.
Please come and see up close how the technique of layering wax and dye over and over again creates a mysterious depth on the screen.
ARTIST'S INTRODUCTION / STATEMENT
Using mainly the wax dye technique, she produces a variety of dyed works ranging from two-dimensional to three-dimensional objects, kimonos, furoshiki wrapping cloths, parasols, etc. She is also a member of the "Misotenjin Somoten" group of artists.
Her interest in curves, organic objects, and things too small to be seen often leads her to choose cells, plants, and living things as motifs, establishing her own unique view of the world.
