Mishima Kimiyo at MEM and Art Factory Jonanjima, Tokyo
Mishima Kimiyo (b. 1932) has long been known for her trompe l’oeil ceramic objects that appear to be newspapers or household trash. Two recent exhibitions in Tokyo offered paintings, mixed-media and found objects plus large-scale installations including fiberglass, as well as the expected variety of ceramic work. One show was impressive for its breadth and the other was staggering for its large scale.
