Images of Maio Motoko’s works do not do them justice, these exquisite screens comprised of materials like cloth, foils and acrylic paints rely on the transient nature of Light, Shadow & Shape to complete the works. The philosophy around Maio’s work is that all things are ephemeral, transforming constantly, never only one thing.

Her panelled folding screens embody this quality in that they appear as a flat surface while simultaneously creating a three dimensional form that is evolving constantly, transforming itself and the space around it. Lesley Kehoe Galleries exhibits Maio Motoko’s work permanently along with many other japanese artworks in a range of different mediums including screens, metalwork, glass and ceramics.

Visit their Gallery at Ground Floor, 101 Collins St to experience the works for yourself.
