About

In this most recent body of work, Kawata shreds and reconfigures corrugated cardboard to create objects of fantasy and minimalism.  Transformed by volume and manipulation, the artist elevates these humble materials from their prosaic, utilitarian roles and endows them with elegance and grandeur.  Transformed into wall-mounted, free-standing, and hanging works, these ubiquitous items become the actual surround. In addition to pins, Kawata introduces corrugated cardboard and paperclips as other prominent materials in this exhibition. Exhibitions: 2018, Tamiko Kawata: Permutations, GarveySimon, New York, NY Provenance: Artist to GarveySimon, New York, NY
