I don’t really pursue a style or mannerism, but often particular processes of printmaking and materials at hand inspire my print projects. I enjoy the playful exploration of the junction between materials and processes, and the transformation, which often generates unexpected narratives. I have been wondering though, if the magic of ink on print surface can be communicated through a small monitor. Personally, I enjoy directly sensing the light particles bouncing off the surface of printed marks, stirring the surrounding air molecules a bit.
Kimiko Miyoshi’s printmaking experience began as a collaborative silkscreen printer in Japan. She was also involved in the reproduction of Ukiyo-E as a Kira printer. After receiving her MFA in Printmaking from the University of New Mexico, she built scientific exhibitions for the Explora Science Center, a children’s science museum in Albuquerque, NM. The work had a great effect on her creative practice and observational habits. She currently teaches printmaking at CSU, Long Beach.
