AUTUMN MOON: ceramics & artist books

Closing celebrations with the artist: Saturday 8th October 2-4pm

Port Jackson Press is delighted to present their first solo exhibition with Kyoko Imazu­, Autumn Moon,­ a collection of new prints, artist books and ceramics.

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

Moving to Australia as a young adult, Imazu draws upon on her nostalgic view of childhood in Japan, a reflection that is intrinsic to the narrative of each work. She fondly recalls idyllic memories of vast rice paddocks, natural growth, colours and tiny animals. Animals are found throughout Japanese and Australian mythologies. Imazu’s practice is heavily influenced by this common folklore as she explores her relationship with memory and the natural world.

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. Channeling Alice in Wonderland, proportions are distorted, with dandelions and towering plant-life creating magical landscapes for miniature characters, animals and monsters.

It’s the tiny details in Imazu’s technically accomplished etchings and aquatints that are so compelling. Each character from Imazu’s imagination inspires and challenges new readings of familiar narratives.

The introduction of ceramics and sculpture in Autumn Moon, brings new life to Imazu’s mythical characters and continues her aesthetic narrative. Furthering this, ‘the sculptural’ is a natural extension of the belief that underpins her magical, imagined worlds – that “each dust particle has its own universe.”

Kyoko Imazu was first introduced to printmaking when studying Print Imaging Practice at RMIT under the guidance of senior printmaker Jazmina Cininas. Autumn Moon creates the platform for the reunion of these two highly accomplished artists, their mutual connection to folklore, storytelling and a fascination with the animal within.
