Intro
Mari Ishikawa, born in Kyoto, Japan, lives and works in Munich, Germany. After graduating from the Academy of Fine Arts, Munich with Prof. Otto Künzli, she held solo exhibitions in more than 20 countries in Europe, America and Asia. She received art awards such as 2016 by the Bayerische Akademie der Schönen Künste, Munich, Germany, and 2012 The Elizabeth R. Raphael Founder’s Prize, Pittsburg, USA, etc. Her works are collected in Victoria & Albert Museum, London, Great Britain, MAD (The Museum of Arts and Design, New York City, USA), and Die Neue Sammlung (The Design Museum, Munich, Germany), etc.
 

Statement

Mari Ishikawa sees a parallel world off the beaten track of everyday living, which she wants to make visible with her art. She involves herself fully with her surroundings and is mindfully observant. She experiences nature with all her senses, she is wholly open to the smallest details, discerning and interpreting the aesthetic of things. She interrupts for a brief moment the flow of transience; a precious object is created that has been wrenched from the cycle of life and death to stand for itself and for the moment.
