Journey through Mushikui: Works on Paper by Yuko Kimura (November 27, 2019- March 8, 2020)

 Mushikui  is the Japanese word for wormholes.

 

Yuko Kimura takes a  focus on working intuitively in the present, learning from the piece through the simple act of making.  Her recent work incorporates multiple experimental processes, including etching, aquatint and monotype on pleated or twisted paper using indigo colored etching ink in layers.   Most of the work utilizes old worm-eaten book pages from Japan and handmade papers that are made from kozo, gampi and abaca fibers.  Yuko also embeds paper threads in handmade abaca paper.  Transparency, form, and texture all take priority as she constructs her two and three dimensional patchwork experiments.  The notion of history and recycling are central in her body of work.

 

Yuko was born in Oakland, California to Japanese parents and raised in Tokyo, her American name is Margaret.  She has lived in the U.S. since 1989.
