Kyoko Imazu One Window Exhibition
June 3, 2017 ~ June 30, 2017
Opening Reception: June 3 (Sat.) 6-8pm

AG Gallery is proud to present “Still-Summer”, a one window exhibition by Kyoko Imazu. Imazu is Japanese artist, printmaker and sculptor, living and working in Australia. She is mostly known for her printmaking and her work has been featured in multiple solo and group exhibitions museums and galleries including Kyoto Museum of Art in Kyoto, Japan, Japan Foundation Gallery win Sydney Australia, Odd One Out in Hong Kong, Davidson Galleries in Seattle, USA, and many more. Imazu has been featured at AG Gallery since 2014, and this is her second solo exhibition at AG Gallery after “World of Kyoko Imazu” in 2015.

“Drawing animals and monsters is one of my earliest and most important memories from my childhood. My drawings include animals like rabbits, cats and birds and also strange creatures, Yokai from Japanese folklore. Growing up in Japan, I was convinced—and very scared—that there were Yokai and other creatures lurking behind me and or hiding in the dark corners of the house. They were as real as dogs and cats.” -Kyoko Imazu

Moving to Australia from Japan as a young adult, Kyoko’s work draws narratives from nostalgic memories of childhood in Japan and features insects, animals and Yokai found throughout Japanese folklore that she read and listened to as a child. Her ceramics bring new life to her two dimensional realm of prints and into reality–the ‘real world’ becomes the playground for her adorable creatures.

“Still-Summer” is AG Gallery’s first one window exhibition, featuring Kyoko Imazu’s latest sculptures and her latest original prints.

This exhibition is inspired with the term “still-life”, the still of the summer night, deep silence and calm; stillness… that brings her imaginative creatures into our realm, quietly awaiting visitors in our gallery.
