ミヤタケイコ展 「Lucky Charms」

古来より神と人を結ぶ「神使」として、さまざまな動物たちが祀られてきました。
その姿は人間の想像力により、時に異形の魅力を湛えています。
ヌイグルミ系造形作家のミヤタケイコさん。独自のその作品世界は、
木彫、テラコッタ等も素材に取り入れ、近年より深化を見せています。
「Lucky Charms」展、戌年と共に 縁起よく始まります。

From ancient times, people had been worshipping various animals as messengers between gods and people. 

Figures of the sacred animals have grown by people’s imagination in some ways to wear magical attractiveness

of strange-looking beings.  Keiko Miyata is an artist who calls herself as a “stuffed-animallike-sculpture creator”,

because she firstly started her career as a stuffed animal designer. 

Her unique world now expands to include wood and terra-cotta figures, in the process of deepening it further in recent years. 

Miyata’s latest exhibition “Lucky Charms” is opening on January 12, 2018 at Gallery Nayuta, bringing good luck to you all

at the beginning of the year of the Dog.

Keiko Miyata:  Stuffed-animallike- sculpture creator

 

Worked as a stuffed animal designer after graduation from the junior college with a major in painting.

 

Inspired by a certain stage design, she started her career as an artist in 1994.

 

Since then she has been creating unique, strange animallike sculptures from small to large in size,

 

as if different sort of animals are mixed in her imagination.
