Etsuko Ichikawa investigates what lies between the ephemeral and the eternal through the use of glass, paper, fiber, video, and sound. Her ‘pyrographs’ and ‘aquagraphs’ are drawings made by fire and water, capturing and eternalizing the immediacy of a moment. The format of her work varies from small two-dimensional images to large-scale installations and performance-based work.
