Washi Tales: Works by Kyoko Ibe presents paper sculptures and wall pieces as remarkable examples of papermaking, integrating scale, material, and content. Recently exhibited at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Washi Tales will be reconfigured by the artist for this special exhibition at Heather James Fine Art. Kyoko Ibe’s art making process is one of reflection and meditation in an effort to slow and transcend time. Her art communicates an inherent tranquility which slowly reveals itself through patient observation. Installed within the walls of the gallery space, Ibe’s art transforms the environment into a sanctuary against the world outside and acts as an antidote to the fast-paced consumption of imagery and life.
