Artist Statement for the Show, "From Memory to Memory"

 Artist Statement for the show From Memory To Memory

For the last several years, I have been making artworks under the same theme - my search for the place to fully call “home.”  In this show, you will see my journey and endeavor to explore some different ways to express this same thought of mine from various approaches, using various mediums, different modes of rendering, and different disciplines.  Whether it is two dimensional or three dimensional, whether it is abstract or representational, you may find some common aspects in these works since I have been using the same visual language that I developed.  New work ideas arose from my previous works as the base.  Some works have formed into a body of work, some have been placed between bodies of work, and some ideas are still evolving.  This show is my first attempt to share this artistic journey publicly from the beginning stage till today.  It looks like moving from a memory to another memory.    Chiyoko Myose

In this show at the Fiber Studio, my old friend of lozenge composition is coming back.
The painting  on the left is "Iridescence #63", 2017, and the one on the right is "The Hiding Place",2009.  It is interesting that they have 8 years between them, but the content is pretty much the same.

Also, some drawings are included in this show.  Probably most of you have never seen these works before.  The face in the first drawing is me as a young girl.  My daughter helped me by becoming the model.  It is a good memory!
