Datebook: Miya Ando’s Minimalist Artwork at Winston Wächter Fine Art, Seattle

“Tasogare (Twilight) The Time of Moonlight, Sunlight & Starlight),” a solo exhibition by American minimalist artist Miya Ando will run at Winston Wächter Fine Art, Seattle, from September 8 through October 27, 2016. The artist creates thoughtful landscapes on metal using dye, urethane, and resin in a way that pays homage to the Japanese heritage of sword-making and Buddhism.

For her solo exhibition, Ando focuses her attention on the moment that exists right at hand and reminds viewers that time is both transitional and temporal. The careful selection of materials helps the artist to create pieces that play with light, transforming with each angle and viewer.

The title “Tasogare” is Japanese for twilight, that time of the day when sunlight, moonlight, and starlight combine to transform the evening sky. -

Artsy Specialist Picks: Kintsugi (Repaired with Gold) Shou Sugi Ban (Charred Cedar Wood) 4.4.1, 2016 Miya Ando

This exquisite piece by Miya Ando is born from a longstanding tradition of Kintsugi, the Japanese art of repairing broken objects using lacquer dusted with powdered gold. This tradition comes from the idea that an object’s wear and tear adds to the object’s history rather than marking the item as a defect. Ando’s‘repair’ of the charred wood with lacquer and gold has ties to her longtime preoccupation with Zen Buddhist philosophies of embracing the ephemeral and the imperfect. Similar to her artworks, the artist’s life also has a touch of magic.  She is of both Japanese and Russian heritage, and is a descendant of Bizen sword makers. She was first raised by smith-turned Buddhist priests in Japan then moved to the redwood forests of Santa Cruz, California. Now living and working in Brooklyn, the artist has exhibited extensively throughout the world, including the “Frontiers Imagined” Exhibition at the 56th Venice Biennale to a more recent solo exhibition at Sundaram Tagore in New York this past July.

 Ginga ("The Silver River" / "Galaxy") and Mandala is a continued investigation into the themes of perception and one’s relationship to nature and time.

The mandalas in the exhibition are created using Bodhi (Ficus Religiosa) skeleton leaves from  the Bodhi tree, the species of tree under which The Buddha gained enlightenment. The leaves are dyed, arranged, and sewn together to compose diaphanous, elegant, and meditative works.

Miya Ando has also created a new series of luminous paintings on metal for the exhibition. A descendant of Bizen sword makers, she combines traditional techniques with modern industrial technology, skillfully transforming metal panels into ethereal abstract paintings infused with color. The reflective material produces experiential and mutable surfaces that shift with light.
