Kyoko Fischer’s style of artwork is abstract, though she often draws from familiar objects in nature. She is a printmaker and painter, primarily using oil paint, encaustic, cold wax, and etching (intaglio print). With a BFA in Fine Art from San Jose State University, Kyoko is an MFA graduate student in Pictorial Art at San Jose State University. She has received numerous awards for her work, the most recent being 1st place from the Pacific Art League National Print Competition and Exhibition (juried by
Valerie Wade) in 2012.
Kyoko was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan, and her background often informs her approach to art. Besides playing with colors found in nature and exploring the concept of fuyuu (which means “floating in the air” in Japanese), she is especially interested in how the past and present intersect to a meeting point – and what tensions emerge as a result.
