With the goal of providing a sense of calm and peace through her art, Kyoko Bass employs traditional Japanese inspired techniques such as Kirie (papercut art), Ukiyo-e (woodblock prints) and Sumi-e (ink wash painting). Growing up in rural Japan near mountains and ocean, Bass has always been fascinated with the natural organic forms and patterns nature creates. Through painting and paper sculpture her artworks explore these delicate patterns of nature and natural phenomena such as wave and wind movements.
