Gallery Reception: Kyoko Mashimo

Kyoko Mashimo’s abstract sumi-e ink wash paintings meld a master’s control of the calligraphy brush with untamed expressiveness.


Moment I realized I wanted to become an artist.
I was on a 9th grade field trip to the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum. My teacher and two classmates were having a heated discussion over a piece of art. Their passion made me realize I wanted to devote myself entirely to something.

What I would tell my 20-year-old self.
Embrace curiosity, travel and broaden your horizons.

My perfect creative environment.
Out in the countryside surrounded by nature. Somewhere with my home and atelier together, where I can work as well as store and display my art.

Artist, living or dead, I’d most like to share a meal with.
The painter and poet Henri Michaux. He transports me to a wonderful and mysterious world.
