I Always Prefer a Treat….

“Predictive Dream XXXIV” by Katsuyo Aoki, Japan, 2012
Japan
2012
Each unique “skull” in the Predictive Dream Series is made of cast porcelain with white glaze and comes with the Plexi wall-mounting box and certificate of authenticity. Since her first solo exhibition in 2001 at Gallery LE DECO in Tokyo, Aoki has gone on to receive numerous awards and has been featured in exhibitions at the Saison Modern Art Museum in Karuizawa and the Taro Okamoto Museum of Art in Kawasaki. She was also selected for the prestigious Greenwich House Pottery Artist in Residency Program in New York. The past and the present collide in Aoki’s “Predictive Dream” series of porcelain skulls. Her work has sold successfully at major international auction sales. For the artist the use of ceramics as her preferred material is a method of expression through which she is able to incorporate various decorative styles, patterns, and symbolic forms. In her work, Aoki alludes to “historical backgrounds and ideas, myths, and allegories.”

“I think furnishings (the majority anyway), should be timeless, so I tend to lean toward traditionally appointed interiors; and furnishings should always be the best quality one can afford.” – DLM.
