Kyoko Imazu

Kyoko Imazu mesmerises audiences; bringing her personal fairy tales, creatures and characters to life. Tiny creatures crawl out of Imazu’s imagination and into the hearts of the audience.

Moving to Australia as a young adult, Imazu reflects on her nostalgic view of childhood in Japan, intrinsic to the narrative of each work. She fondly recalls the idyllic memories of vast rice paddocks, natural growth, colours and tiny animals.

Imazu’s printmaking has developed vastly over the past few years, her imagery has moved from representational depictions of animals to beautifully illustrated imagined worlds. Channelling Alice in Wonderland, proportions are distorted with dandelions and towering plant life creating a landscape for miniature characters, animals and monsters.

It is the tiny details in Imazu’s technically accomplished etchings and aquatints that become so compelling – each character and creature that inhabits Imazu’s imagination inspires and challenges a new reading of the narrative.

The semblance of the animal is found throughout Japanese and Australian mythologies. Imazu’s practice is heavily influenced by this folklore as she explores her relationship with memory and the natural world.

The introduction of ceramics and sculpture in her solo exhibtion in 2016 Autumn Moon, brings new life to Imazu’s mythical characters and assists in the continuation of her narrative; the fascination that “each dust particle has its own universe”.

Imazu completed a Bachelor of Fine Art in Printmaking from RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia where she now resides. Her work is held in collections at State Library of Queensland, National Library of Australia, National Gallery of Australia, Melbourne Athenaeum Library, RMIT, Sydney College of Arts and numerous private collections worldwide. She regularly exhibits her work nationally and internationally.
