Winston Wächter Fine Art is proud to announce, Vitrified, an exhibition of works of various mediums by Seattle artist Etsuko Ichikawa.
Since 2011, driven by the devastation caused by the nuclear incident at Fukushima, Etsuko Ichikawa has explored the various impacts of human existence on the environment. By researching deeply the ancient artifacts left by her Japanese ancestors, she was struck by the contrast of what we might leave buried in the ground for future generations. In her recent body of work, Vitrified, Ichikawa uses photography, film, glass sculptures, and works on paper to express the fluidity of our life sustaining elements, and the urgency to protect them.
Vitrified was supported in part by 4Culture Art Projects Grants and the Pratt Fine Arts Center Edwin T. Pratt Scholarship.
