The Embassy of Australia presents a solo exhibition by Japanese Australian artist Hiromi Ashlin. Recognised as a renowned “sensei-level” calligrapher, origami master and contemporary artist, her art blends traditional Japanese elements with her Australian Pacific connection. Hiromi’s time with Indigenous Australian artists can clearly be seen in some of her work on display.
Hiromi’s delicate and meticulously folded papers vary in remarkable colour arrays. They are painted, stippled, washed, burned and mixed with watercolours and calligraphy. The complexity is found in the undulated visual sense or “movement” in each piece. See exhibition website.
Presented by the Embassy of Australia in collaboration with the Embassy of Japan, and sponsored by BHP Billiton.
