Rieko Fujinami - Impressions exhibition

The exhibition title, “Impressions”, refers to the impression made on paper when it is run through the high pressure of a press with an inked copper etching plate, and the story-world that etching creates.

The exhibition title,“Impressions”, refers to the impression made on paper when it is run through the high pressure of a press with an inked copper etching plate, and the story-world that etching creates. The etchings shown are about personal obsessions, music and myths, and worldevents.

The exhibition also includes botanical works produced using an original technique called “frottage drawings”. They were made by transferring photo-based plant images onto thin Japanese washi paper, burning the edges of the washi paper, mounting it onto etching paper, and adding watercolor, acrylic paint, and colored pencil to the surface. Imperfect and blurred photographic images were used to express the invisible aspects of nature, like passing time, air, and the smell of flowers, which is expressed in Japanese as mujōkan, or impermanence.

Artist reception, Saturday, December 8, 2018, 5-9pm. Talk at 6:30pm
