Juliana Matsumara is a Japanese-Brazilian artist living and working in Lisbon and Sao Paulo. Her delicate, abstract forms are instantly recognisable and have been exhibited and collected internationally. Her work is defined by the printed texture of paper, of the torn edges of collages and fluid shapes that both fill and dance across the surface of her works.
Upon a first interaction with Japanese artist, Kuniko Maeda’s organic sculptures, you are confronted with assured forms that appear to grow from nothing. They echo the elaborate fungi found in rich jungle ecosystems and their sentiment is not so distant. Paper cards are Maeda’s material of choice, an overlooked, often immediately discarded object, found in abundance today. The soft kraft browns allude to the sculptures’ material composition, however, the scalloped edges, folds pouring out in expanding waves, and organic, yet assured shapes elevate this unappreciated everyday material.
