Born in Fukuoka prefecture, Japan, Ayano Yoshizumi is a glass artist currently based in Adelaide, South Australia.
Yoshizumi’s work employs traditional glass blowing and glass painting with enamel painting, as well as acrylic painting inspired by Fauvism. Underpinning the work is, on one hand, an almost formal quality to the markings and approach, and on the other, a refined yet wholly relaxed casualness to assemblage that suggests her brilliant alertness to the moment-to-moment possibilities of glass making. This double nature of the work lends it considerable depth, charm and a surprising intensity as an aesthetically mutable structure.
In 2021, Her work has been acquired by the Art Gallery of Western Australia for the State Art Collection.
After completing her Bachelor of Fine Arts at Musashino Art University in 2014, She undertook 2 years of education at the Toyama Institute of Glass Art. She relocated to Australia in 2019 for undertaking JamFactory’s Associate training program at the glass studio. Since completing the program in 2020, she continues her practice at JamFactory Glass Studio.
Japanese artist Ayano Yoshizumi has a strong interest in the use of glass as an expressive material as well as using space and colour as primary tools for considering the work as a three- dimensional canvas to strike a unique balance between art and craft. These conceptual works are influenced by Fauvism and Minimalism in her strong and expressive use of colour and shape as well as the serendipitous nature of the hot-glassmedium. The building of both internal and external spaces using blown glass and painting creates a constructed, transparent space. The Japanese concept ma, meaning negative space, identifies the aesthetic of each object’s internal and external space. In essence, it is ma that creates the depth and complexity of the object itself.
