KYOKO IMAZU “Adore” 23 April-11 May 2013

“Adore” exhibition will feature recent works on paper by Melbourne based Japanese artist KYOKO IMAZU.
She will be exhibiting her  etchings, aquatints, artist books and paper cut works.
As a child in central Japan, Kyoko Imazu drew animals like rabbits, rats, cats and birds for her mother. Animals continue to dominate her art practice; her works on paper are inspired by taxidermied animals in the collections of the Melbourne Museum and the Tokyo Nature and Science Museum — and by her own cat, Rachel.
Adore is Kyoko’s investigation into her fixation with the animal kingdom and how recording and interpreting it evoke memories from her childhood

Exhibition Opening  Tuesday 23 April  at 7pm.  Please join us for a glass of wine!
Exhibition to be opened by JAZMINA CININAS, Artist and Lecturer in Printmaking  at RMIT.
