PROJECT ATRIUM: HIROMI MONEYHUN

April 28, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

APRIL 28, 2023 – AUGUST 27, 2023

Born and raised in Kyoto, Japan, Hiromi Mizugai Moneyhun (b. 1977) is a papercut artist who has been living in Jacksonville Beach since 2004. With no formal art training, she has evolved a unique, homegrown artistic voice that responds specifically to the tradition of Kiri-e, or Japanese paper cutting, and combines with the ultra-modern graphic language that is found in Japan today. Beginning with a line drawing, the artist uses a fine-blade knife wielded with a remarkably steady hand to carve the image out of black archival paper. The delicate works are then mounted on different supports, creating textured patterns of light and shadow of astounding complexity and rich detail. The result are works that are at once amusingly lighthearted and poetic, and startlingly alive. In recent years she has expanded her media, allowing her to create ever larger structures for her work.
