2010 - present
Through her photographs, Japanese artist Mayumi Terada reveals seemingly familiar and intimate domestic scenes devoid, though suggestive, of human presence - a soup plate sitting on a table, a shower stall, bare closets with empty hangers. Trained as a sculptor, Terada first builds diminutive domestic sets out of balsa wood and Styrofoam, clay and fabric, and photographs them to achieve these austere environments. Terada received her MFA from the University of Tsukuba and currently lives and works in New York.
