From Kyoto to the Stars is a special exhibition of Sarah Brayer’s poured washi paperworks and rare early prints and paintings. As the days become shorter and the moon rises earlier in the sky, we chose to feature Sarah’s new aquatint on indigo dyed handmade mulberry paper, with phosphorescent pigments, Midnight Moon.
It’s the rainy season in Japan, this special exhibition is built around Daniel Kelly’s new woodblock print Slippery When Wet.
This special exhibition includes some of Kelly’s earliest and most rare landscape images, most famous lantern paintings and prints, koi prints and tea bowl images, many of which there is only one left available for sale.
Yuko Kimura’s new series Usumono is about thin transparent handmade paper layers. Yuko Kimura won the Agnes Gund Award in 1994. Transparency, form,and texture all take priority as she constructs her one of a kind two and three dimensional handmade paper, hand stitched, etchings, linoleum block, and experimental patchwork prints.
Her translucent kozo bark fiber lace makes each work mysterious and beautiful. Please enjoy these new works, and some works from her other series too.
