Chain Ring - Ryoko Aoki
isbn 9784902943474Â Â Â FOIL
With a signature use of botanic or landscape motifs coupled with diffuse lines that form map-like objects, Kyoto based painter Ryoko Aokiâ€™s working approach has led to the creation of her own unique floating world full of mysterious humour. This first publication on the work of the artist presents an extensive body of predominantly existing works on paper that also explore the theme of â€˜linking.â€™ Delightfully produced, the book is illustrated throughout and contains a combination of delicate sketches, watercolours and gouache on paper, along with several photographs, juxtaposed and linked to one another.
