Our 6th artist in residence and final Daiwa Foundation funded artist is Ann-Marie James, a fine artist from London, UK. Ann-Marie will be working at HeadSpace Studio from 5th ~ 29th April 2011.

AM: “At Headspace, I would like to produce a body of work in response to imagery found and experienced during my stay – drawing upon both historical and contemporary imagery from Japanese culture. As all of my work appropriates found imagery, I would like to engage with the visitors, asking them to bring along images which I may appropriate in my drawings and paintings.”

If you’d like to submit an image to Ann-Marie, please email it to photo@headspace.jp
Imagery she is especially interested in receiving include the human figure, images from Japanese culture that depict the human form in any way – images from art history, manga, fashion, advertising, or pornography. Images taken on your mobile phone are fine too. The deadline for submissions is 17th April 2011.

New work by Ann-Marie will be on show at Soho Gallery, Osaka, from Friday 22nd ~ Sunday 24th April, with an artist talk and party on Saturday 23rd. All welcome!
