Ayumi Shibata

My Wings

Born in Yokohama, Japan, moved to New York in 2007.

In 2010, I started the series of works using paper.

 I am inspired by Japanese traditional nature worship.

The works show the message of coexistence regarding with the spirits relating to the human,animals and nature within a harmonious context. I create my ideal world in the layered paper.

In 2013 I began making a series of book sculpture ,cutting out images from sketch book to create three- dimensional world by hand.  It is the traces of actions of a paper,but each pages has the different details like hidden house,rooms and the story,which is creating the three diminutional diorama.
