Kyoko Imazu

Kyoko Imazu is a Japanese artist based in Melbourne, whose practice encompasses a range of mediums such as printmaking, papercut, puppetry and installation, bookbinding and ceramics.

Her work tells the stories of our often-overlooked neighbors like the weeds, bugs and pebbles that fill our everyday lives. Upon closer inspection, every petal, leaf and wing is miraculously unique; they all have their own stories and universes within themselves, containing many states of life, death and regeneration. She combines her own memories with the stories of these tiny neighbors to try to make sense of the world we live in and imagine the worlds we cannot see with our own eyes.

Her works are held in collections at various public institutions such as National Library of Australia, State Library of Queensland, State Library of Victoria and National Gallery of Australia as well as numerous private collections worldwide.

She regularly exhibits her work nationally and internationally especially in Hong Kong, New Zealand and New York.
