About the Artist
Hiromi Moneyhun moved to Jacksonville, Florida, in 2004 from her hometown of Kyoto, Japan. She began drawing at a young age, and by her teen years she had already developed a style of her own. With no formal art training, Hiromi has developed a unique homegrown artistic voice that combines traditional Japanese visual art forms with the super-modernity now found in all of Japan’s biggest cities. The most obvious reference is to Edo Period Japanese woodblock prints (moku hanga), which had a major influence on her budding artist’s mind early on.
As with woodblock prints, Hiromi’s three-dimensional cut paper pieces are the result of a multistep process which produces an art that is at once amusingly lighthearted and startlingly alive. Visitors to the museum can view Hiromi Moneyhun’s work in the exhibition, Pierce, Mark, Morph, on view until February 12, 2017.
