MIYA ANDO MUJO [IMPERMANENCE] JUNE 20 - JULY 20, 2013
Our friend and a one of the most amazing artists on tumblr Miya Ando will open her solo exhibition in Sundaram Tagore Gallery, New York - Mujo (Impermanence).
What says official press release about Miya’s upcoming exhibition:
“A descendant of Bizen sword makers, Ando was raised among sword smiths and Buddhist priests in a temple in Okayama, Japan. Combining traditional techniques of her ancestry with modern industrial technology, Ando skillfully transforms sheets of burnished steel and anodized aluminum into ephemeral abstractions suffused with subtle gradations of color.
For Ando, the paradoxical pairing of spiritual subject matter with metal is intentional. She says: “My work is an exploration into the duality of metal and its ability to convey strength and permanence, yet in the same instance absorb shifting color and capture the fleetingness of light. It reminds us of the transitory nature of all things in life.”
