Miya Ando: Clouds is a solo exhibition featuring new works on her continued study of her “Kumo” Cloud series.
The "Kumo" (Clouds) series are works that investigate an individual's relationship to time. By employing a vocabulary of clouds, an examination of transitoriness and an awareness to the present moment occurs. The works are created on a metal surface that captures and displays this material’s unique fleeting quality of light. This series of works has been inspired by a concept that is based in Buddhism, as well as in quantum physics: the fundamental nature of reality is that all constituent forms that make up the universe are temporary. — Miya Ando
