Japanese artist Aya Fukami centers her practice around arrangements which draw a line between gesture and form. The representation of low value objects replace familiar modernist gestures and shapes, each testing it's competence to replace or dominate the other. Natural and casual representations are made to relate to the processes of abstract painting and sculpture without actually defining them.
Born in Tokyo, Aya Fukami completed her MA at Chelsea School Of Art in 2007. Since graduating Fukami had her first solo exhibition ‘Reviving Isolation’ at Permanent Gallery, Brighton. Recent group exhibitions include ‘How we maybe late at Tate’ at ‘Late at the Tate’, and ‘Halcyon Days’, The Drawing Room, London.
