Gifty Picks - Day 7 - Systema Naturae by Kyoko Matsunaga
One of the most original voices in book art these days is Kyoko Matsunaga. This Japanese artist makes beautiful books, often creating dream-like works with translucent paper and is always a hit in the gallery. She also is very talented with her painting skills, often layering white paint on photographs to create intriguing botanicals and city scenes. In addition to using these paintings in her books she has created a series of small painted cubes that are just gorgeous.
Check out her encaustic cubes here, these small cubes are composed of a wood cube layered with paper, paint and wax. Text on cubes is quoted from SYSTEMA NATURAE by Carolus Linnaeus 1758.
Because all of her works would make great gifts, today you can purchase any of Kyoko's works from gallery inventory with free shipping if ordered by noon tomorrow.
