MIYANAGA Aiko Wrapping a Verse
Artist Miyanaga Aiko is known for her sculptures in naphthalene, resin and glass, and installations using salt and leaf veins, all with an overarching theme of “ever-changing continuation.” Miyanaga gathers up nondescript everyday occurrences that come to her notice, and elevates them to breathtakingly beautiful works of art.
On the occasion of this exhibition MIYANAGA Aiko Wrapping a Verse, having spent time engaging face to face with glass, Miyanaga employs this seductive material to present in Toyama new works that embrace water, air, and history. Coming face to face in turn with Miyanaga’s creations will doubtless lead us to form connections with and reflect upon our own personal memories.
MIYANAGA Aiko Wrapping a Verse offers a superb opportunity to experience the appreciative observation of the day-to-day that underlies all of Miyanaga’s expression, and be suffused with its warm glow.
