Artist Talk: Thursday, November 13th, 9:30AM and 10:30AM
Reception: Saturday, November 15th from 3-5pm
Niho Kozuru is a Japanese-born artist working in Boston, MA. Inspired by the traditional and industrial architectural forms that surround her, Kozuru's work endeavors to explore and re-contextualize these often forgotten classical or unconventional forms by giving them new spirit and new life. Kozuru molds from found lathe turned elements; her interest in turned forms originates from her family history of ceramics, as she descends from generations of clay artists in Fukuoka, Japan.
Kozuru’s selected artwork is in permanent collections of the Sheldon Museum of Art, the deCordova Sculpture Park + Museum, the Art Complex Museum, the Danforth Museum of Art, and Fidelity Investments. She has exhibited internationally, including work at the ICA/Boston and the Fukuoka City Art Museum. Kozuru received a BFA from Parsons School of Design and an MFA from the University of Hawaii.
