We are very happy to have here at the shop some works by Montreal-based artist, Heather Midori Yamada.
Her work uses different textures and abstract shapes, employing among others, washi Japanese paper. All the swatches of paper you see here have been painstakingly dyed by Heather herself.
We can also see elements of shodo Japanese calligraphy.
Heather's art exudes spontaneity and openness that pique our contemplative side.
Artist profile taken from Heather's website:
Heather Midori Yamada is a Montreal visual artist and teacher who works with Japanese washi papers in paintings, collage and installations. Having begun in Toronto`s Open Studio during the 1980`s Heather primarily used washi papers in monotypes. These works explored natural plants as imagery and actual plants imprinted. These washi, etched & embossed, monotype-print constructions were often marouflaged onto western paper supports. The work evolved into mixed media and collage paintings.
