Chie Aoki’s sculptures are strange – are they hybrids or humans going through some metamorphosis? Are we looking at a moment of change or a well crafted object – figures that play with the synthetic/organic boundary? I’m not sure and don’t think I’ll ever find out as tracking down any information on the artist or her work is very difficult. There is barely a whisper of her online which in this day and age is very strange – stranger than her work. Having said that I do know that shes a craft graduate from the Kanazawa College of Art in Japan and is about 30 years old.
Anyway let us not get distracted, get away from the sheer wonder of her work – it is thought provoking, has a depth to it and I for one would love to walk around it sometime.e.com/2012/08/29/the-beautiful-mystery-of-chie-aokis-work/” target=”_blank”>Hi-Fructose
