Hello! I am grateful to receive Kala Master Artist Award this year! The gala auction is tomorrow 4/6 from 6-9:30m! I donated this piece for their auction. This will go up on live auction. It’s a special piece on hand dyed indigo pater from Japan, and the frame was generously donated by @small.works.sf. Kala is such an important institution in the Bay Area. Let’s support this amazing institution together! ######## Please send me DM for inquary or @aimeefriberg or @kalaartinstitute. Moon bear’s instrument is based on a genre of traditional Japanese paintings (Hyakki Yagyo) that depict a “night parade with one hundred demons.” These paintings usually show a procession of various yokai or shape shifters from Japanese folklore—animals and objects that have taken on powers and attributes they did not have before. Miki has made a series of drawings of shape shifters—some with animals, like the fox, and some inanimate objects like plates and tools. The elder moon bear is considered a shape shifter in Japanese folklore and here he joins Miki’s pantheon of yokai. Miki has exhibited throughout the Bay Area and currently has a show at the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, on view through April 28 that includes life-sized sculptural shape shifters in a vibrant, playful installation. . . . #artkala2019 #buyart #supportkala #kalagala #kalaauction #collectart #artcollector #masakomiki #shapeshifters #yokai #japaneseart

MATRIX 273 January 9-April 28 2019 at Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film archive! I am so honored to be the part of Matrix Exhibition series. I have been preparing this show for a year and a half. This is the most involved projects I have ever done. It is an installation w 13 life-sized felt sculptures and wall and floor design together. Working from my miniature felt sculpture led to this new series. So many people helped working on this show and I cannot thank you enough. I hope to create an alternative space where boundaries are dissolved and new synthesis is possible. I am looking forward sharing these new shapeshifters very soon! Works above will be in concurrent exhibition at @cultexhibitions and more images will be up soon. Please inquiry to @aimeefriberg for these works @bampfa @cultexhibitions マトリックス273 が 1／9から4／28までバークレーアート美術館にて開催されます。歴史ある現代アートシリーズのプログラムに参加させて頂き本当に光栄です。1年半をかけて準備をして来た展示会をみなさんとシェアできるのを楽しみにしております。3年前のミニチュアのフェルトスカルプチュアの制作から始まり今回等身大のスケールに仕上げました。壁と床のデザインと一緒に新しい空間をつくりたいとおもいます。境界のない空間で自由な発想が生まれるようなそんな空間を作りたいです。#masakomiki #shapeshifter
