Emi Ozawa

Emi Ozawa’s impeccably constructed painted wood works are beautiful and curiously playful. She is known for creating surprising kinetic works, such as boxes with swinging lids and sculptures that transform as certain elements are moved. For this exhibition, Ozawa introduces a new body of wall-based works. These pieces experiment with color theory, using a technique where two sides of an angled piece of wood are painted differently, so that as the viewer moves through the space the images appears to change. Emi combines a delicate minimalist sensibility with a playful sense of form and color, and an immaculate mastery of craft and construction.
