Winston Wächter Fine Art, New York is excited to present new Vitrified works by Etsuko Ichikawa.
These new works are a continuation of Ichikawa’s Vitrified series which was shown in her first solo exhibition with the New York gallery in early 2019. In these works, molten glass is used as a fiery paint, scorching the surface of velvety, cast cotton paper. Ichikawa creates lyrical, flowing abstractions from the encounter of these contradictory elements of fire and paper, which she complements with watercolors.
Vitrified encourages viewers to accept and embrace the ironies, contradictions, and interconnectedness of all elements in life.
