Shiomi started painting at the age of fourteen, and shifted to printmaking at the age of twenty. Her technique is based on the traditional way of printing, with water-based colours, but utilising new materials and tools including the contemporary Baren.  The artist makes contemporary woodcut prints, often using traditional Japanese icons such as the great wave by ukio-e artist Hokusai (b. 1760).  Shiomi’s imagery focus on the space and beyond, or indeed the world beyond, such as there may be a room beyond a door, and then a landscape. Her prints also have a distinct architectural context.  Shiomi completed her long-term project of smaller one-hundred prints series called, “One Hundred Views of Mitate” in 2017.  Please contact us for the available prints from this Mitate Series.
