Autumn Gallery Hopping
Just in time for fall is Miya Ando’s new exhibit, Kisetsu (Seasons), at Sundaram Tagore Gallery. Much like the changing weather outside, this exhibit is centered on ideas of transformation-both physical and metaphorical. Ando’s cultural background plays a critical role in her work. On one side, she comes from a long line of Japanese sword makers and for this series of work she applies elements of the sword making process to her own art making process. Using aluminum as her primary surface material, Ando quite literally transforms sheets of aluminum into abstract paintings. This is a two part process. First, there is the act of turning the metal into a canvas-like surface, which the artist achieves by applying heat, sandpaper, grinders, acid and patinas to the metal. By doing all of this, Ando completely changes the chemistry of the metal. Second, there is the act of applying paint to the metal, which Ando accomplishes in different ways depending on how she wants the paint to appear. All of her works are a mix of glossy and matte finishes but they are all united by being distinctly abstract. At both the conceptual and practical levels, Ando’s work meditates on change and how transformation is never sudden. It takes time for these shifts to occur. And better yet, the serene abstractions that fill up the walls in this exhibit perfectly echo the subtle shift from summer to fall that is currently taking shape outdoors.

Miya Ando’s artwork brings colour to sheets of aluminium

by MADHUMITA VENKATARAMANAN

Half-Japanese, half-Russian/American metalsmith Miya Ando makes art through alchemy. In her studio in New York, she uses chemical techniques such as anodisation and patination to transform industrial metals into radiant artworks. “I love to work with all things luminescent,” she says. “That’s my primary reason for working with steel and aluminium — nothing reflects light like metal does.”

Ando was raised in a Buddhist temple in Okayama, Japan, and is descended from a family of sword makers. “I started working with steel as soon as I was old enough to handle it,” she says. After learning welding and smithing, she returned to the US and began to experiment. “I submerge aluminium in an electrochemical bath and plate it with sapphire crystals to make it really hard and take up dyes easily,” she says. “Once I pull it out of the tank, I wash it out with water and mix 20-30 different colours and chemicals in little buckets to create a palette of custom colours.” Her painting technique involves hand brushing the colours in multiple layers on to the metal. “Then I put it into a vat of boiling liquid which snaps the surface crystals shut and holds the dye permanently.”
