Tomoko Amaki Abe: A Hair’s Breadth 間一髪

at A.I.R. Gallery

A.I.R. Gallery is pleased to announce A Hair’s Breadth, an exhibition of new work by New York Member Tomoko Amaki Abe. Through glass sculpture, works on paper, and video, Abe reflects on the ephemerality of humans and the endurance of nature, while also interrogating the ways in which the fragility of the aging human body might mirror the vulnerability of our natural environment in the face of climate change. This is Abe’s second solo exhibition at A.I.R.

In the exhibition, industrial materials intermingle with natural materials. Transient phenomena such as shadows are given a more permanent, material form, while obdurate objects like rocks are recast in delicate glass.

Tomoko Amaki Abe lived in Japan, the United States, and the United Kingdom, before settling in the greater New York area. Abe graduated with First Class Honours from Bachelor’s program at the Edinburgh College of Art, during which she received an ERASMUS scholarship to study at the Escuela de Bellas Artes, Salamanca, Spain. Her body of work ranges from painting, paper making, ceramics, glass, and most recently mixed media installations, often drawing themes from nature—its decay and regeneration. She has been an artist in residence recipient at Bullseye Glass, New York in 2018, as well as at Urban Glass, New York in 2020. Her work has been featured by publications including The Brooklyn Rail500 RakuThe New York Times, and Ceramics Art + Perception.
