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. -
