“I create to bring joy” Makoto Kagoshima
A brand-new collaboration with the ceramic artist Makoto Kagoshima and Ritsuko Yagi of the Los Angeles gallery Chariots on Fire featuring three vibrant patterns interpretated as screen printed linen and wallpaper.
Based in Kyushu, the southern island of Japan, Makoto Kagoshima’s practice is to draw images on clay. Simple, heart-warming renderings as roses in exuberant bloom and birds in mid-flight or open song; depicting the world he encounters and the visual images that have since childhood, occupied his dreams. Each illustrated motif remains entirely one of a kind, the culmination of a series of distinct, refined techniques and Kagoshima’s vivid expressivity.
