Art / Design, England

Dead Angle

The beautiful thing about the ICN Gallery is that it has developed a real sense of community; it just seems to attract interesting, creative and friendly people. Through the gallery, we’ve been lucky to have met with some amazing artists and have had the chance to photograph work that inspires and motivates us to do better and think differently.

This time around, the gallery is presenting the work of Miyake Mai-san, an extremely talented and highly regarded artist and art director. I found her work visually interesting immediately. The layered ‘two-and-a-half-dimension‘ cut paper works are delicate and, because they are placed behind aluminium honeycomb screens, you can only see part of the artwork at one time. It was interesting to watch as people ducked and moved around to view the imagery in full.

Talking with Miyake-san was equally fascinating. She eloquently described multi-layered stories and reasoning behind each icon displayed in her work, and the depth under the surface was really rather poetic. She is in London now for a few weeks and we spent the afternoon with her today, just hanging-out at the ICN, and will no doubt spend a little more time together before she returns home.
