Miwa Neishi

Miwa Neishi is a Tokyo-born, New York-based artist, whose sculptural works draw inspiration from abstract expressionism, prehistoric clay figures, and Japanese calligraphy. Neishi has studied and worked in various regions in Japan and in the US, exploring art in both contemporary and traditional perspectives. Her sculptural flower vases are made to invite people to connect with the elemental forms of life—earth and nature—in their homes. The placements of the openings of each work are playful, sometimes challenging, to open the new ways of looking at arrangement.
