Sun and Moon – A Hundred Bowls by Yoko Imada

Sep 22, 2022 at 11:00am ~ Oct 01, 2022 at 6:00pm

Like a whirlwind of colour, Yoko Imada’s porcelain bowls ripple with a vivacity that embodies the loquacious artist herself. After studying at the Aichi Prefectural University of Fine Arts and Music and the Royal College of Art, London, Imada further apprenticed under the legendary ceramic artist Ryoji Koie, and her works are deeply influenced by her mentor’s flair with both the potter’s wheel and with the brush. In fact, Imada’s powerful strokes in gold and silver lustre are bold paintings in abstraction that imbue her porcelain bodies with a life energy that is distinctively hers. And having sold out all 5 works exhibited at Masterpiece London this June, Imada’s brushwork now also brims with visceral confidence that heightens and accentuates her immaculately thrown bowls. Entitled Sunlight and Moonlight, Imada’s new lustred works may be her most beautiful yet. We hope you agree.
