MINAMI OGURA

Pathway to Abstraction
December 20 - January 12, 2013
Reception: Thursday December 20, 2012 6-8 PM

Press Release

Minami Ogura creates gorgeous, dreamlike prints with an interesting, unexpected dichotomy: a modern sense of aesthetic combined with old materials that hearken back to the days of Ukiyoe. Her work is the result of the “happy accidents” that are such an intrinsic part of the printmaking process. “I think that a casual discovery is the most important factor in the process of printmaking,” she explains. “That is because it is the same as life.” Her prints are abstract, full of air and light; she uses soft colors and wispy lines to make a gentle impression on the viewer, avoiding bold statements in favor of subtle ones. Her goal is simple: to share her experiences and emotions with others through the universal language of art.

Ogura was born in the snowy country of Japan, and the climate extremes she experienced growing up have played a part in shaping her character. She has an impressive array of awards and exhibitions, and she is interested in pursuing more installation work in the future.
