Aiko MIYAWAKI

Born 1929 in Tokyo, Japan.
Graduated history course at Japan Woman's University Department of Literature in 1952. Studied under Nobuya ABE and Yoshishige SAITO. Between 1957 and 1966, she produced works while she stayed in various places across the europe and the US. Her works were sculptures made of brass, stone, glass as well as oil and ink-wash paintings. Her representative sculpture "Utsurohi" is collectioned by Olmpic Plaza at Montjuic (Barcelona, Spain), La Defense (Paris, France), Nagi Museum Of Contemporary Art (Okayama, Japan) and others across the world. Although living on a wheelchair in her last days, she did not lose her creative drive, continuing to create drawings and oil paintings. Passed away on 20th August 2014 at the age of 84.

The retrospective exhibition was held at the Museum of Modern Art, Kamakura & Hayama and also across the globe in 1998.
Miyawaki's silk screens and copper prints has a scent of sensitivity, tranquility and floridness. Her portrait, posing as Mona Lisa, photographed by Man RAY was turned into silk screen poster, designed by her husband Arata ISOZAKI. A brisk spatial fluctuation provided by "Utsurohi", made from ductile metal wire appeals Miyawaki's unique, resonant possibility of a modern art between a man and a nature.
