Perspective, an international online solo texttile art exhibition by Aomi Kikuchi, opens on August 01 and will continue through August 31, 2022.

Aomi Kikuchi creates sculptures, wall pieces and garments using textiles and found objects to explore Japanese aesthetics and the philosophy of Buddha. “Wabi-Sabi”, the beauty found in imperfections, and ”Mono-no-aware”, the feeling of sympathy for changing or perishing phenomena or substances, are two philosophical aesthetics that define her work.

Closely related to the philosophy of Buddha, this exhibition can be summarized in three key words: impermanence, insubstantiality, and suffering.

Artist ( Description ): 

Aomi Kikuchi is a textile artist based in Kyoto, Japan. She holds a BFA from Kyoto University of Art & Design and an MFA from Pratt Institute. Aomi has exhibited her work throughout the world including The First Suzhou Craft Biennale 2021,Woman’s Essence Show 2022, and  Villa Dei Cedri /Art Laguna 2022.

Her work is based on Japanese aesthetic principles and the teachings of the Buddha.

“Wabi-sabi”, a well known philosophy that beauty is found in imperfections and “Mono-no-aware”, the feeling of sympathy for that which changes or perishes such as the seasons and all living things. The Buddha states that nothing exists in the same state forever, that what we believe to exist is uncertain and that we can only recognize with our five senses. People feel suffering when they seek something everlasting yet while existence is not eternal, the activities of matter and life are conceptually infinite.

Aomi takes inspiration from the fragility and fleetingness found in natural cycles and in textile. With over 30 years, Aomi has dedicated extensive and immersive practice to Japanese Kimono Haute Couture, Yuzen dyeing techniques, and silk fabrics after becoming a fashion designer. This background inspires her artistic exploration and her artwork utilizes various textile materials and techniques including extremely thin fibers, goose down, and cotton flower along with knitting, weaving, embroidery, and other craft techniques.

She is currently working on several series of installation pieces, innovative embroidery works, and sculptures. In these works she explores the concept of impermanence and infinity through the use of biology and nature with textiles and waste.
