Wendy Maruyama: Art+Design as Advocacy

 

Wendy Maruyama has been making furniture/art since 1970. Her work is often inspired by extended residencies and visits to various countries such as France, England, Japan, Korea and China. Born in Colorado to second-generation Japanese American parents, her work vaccilates between creating works that emulate and satirize contemporary Japan, among other cultures. Her newest work, “Executive Order 9066”, is influenced by personal and family history and addresses the internment of 120,000 Japanese Americans in 1942.

Discovering an Ancient Culture Through the Contemporary Art Movement of Australia’s Aboriginal People, By Jennifer Guerrini Maraldi

 

The relatively recent development and market prominence of contemporary indigenous painting and sculpture had been making news throughout Australia, but was little known in the UK. While travelling in Australian in the early 1990’s, Jennifer and her husband, purchased a major work by Freddie Timms “Sugar Bag,” (acrylic on canvas, 180 x 230 cm) painted during Freddie’s time working with Frank Watters (Watters Gallery) in Sydney in the late 1990’s.
Living with this magical painting in their collection was the single catalyst for her to begin exhibiting and selling contemporary art in London in the new millennium.
Jennifer travels to Australia each year visiting remote indigenous communities as well as seeing old friends including curators, collectors and artists. Her work in the United Kingdom aims to establish a greater awareness of the best indigenous work and contribute to building a stronger market for ethically sourced, contemporary Australian indigenous, fine art.
