About

Ayano Yoshizumi is an emerging glass artist originally from Japan. After completing her Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) at Musashino University of Art in 2014, she undertook 2 years of education at the Toyama Institute of Glass Art.

After completing her studies, she worked for 3 years in a staff role at Toyama Glass Studio.

 

In her professional career, Ayano took part in the Asialink Residency Program at Canberra Glassworks as the visiting artist in 2017. She has exhibited internationally including at the Canberra Glassworks, Australia (2017), JamFactory, Australia (2020) and the Toyama Glass Art Museum, Japan (2017).

Ayano relocated to Australia in 2019 to participate in the South Australian glass community as part of JamFactory's Associate training program. She is currently undertaking her second year of training.

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-glass medium with a twist. 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. 

​武蔵野美術大学でガラスを学び、2014年に卒業後、富山に移り住む。

富山ガラス造形研究所で勉強を続け、後に富山ガラス工房に就職。

2017年にオーストラリア・キャンベラグラスワークスで6週間の滞在制作を体験したことがきっかけで、オーストラリアのガラスコミュニティに興味をもつ。

主要な個展・グループ展に、Canberra Glassworks (2017), JamFactory (2020), 富山ガラス美術館 (2017) など。

​現在は2019年にオーストラリアに拠点を移し、JamFactory Associate Training Program のガラススタジオアソシエイトとして制作を続けている。

吹きガラス特有のプロセスから生まれる空間と色、ペインティングを組み合わせて表現素材として扱うことに強い興味を持つ。

作品は主に吹きガラスの手法を用いて制作。3次元的なキャンバスに見立てた空洞のガラスの中に別のパーツを入れて構成した「ICON」シリーズなど、「内」と「外」の関係性を主題に、素材の透過性、ペインティングや内側、或いは外側に配置したパーツによって自身が心地よいと感じる「空間」をかたちづくっている。
