Kuniko Maeda is a London-based Japanese artist who seeks to explore the connections between nature and humanity through the use of materials and anthropomorphic forms. She works with paper, often recycled, as well as leather and card. Her practice is influenced and informed by her subject specialism in sustainable textile design and Japanese traditional woodcarving. By exploring the possibility of materials and their unique properties, Maeda allows them to speak and embraces naturally formed abstraction.
