Artist in Residence Shiho Saito

Shiho, from Tokyo, Japan, spent the month of November at Constellation Studios, and worked well in the rhythm of life in Lincoln, and with her own creative discipline.    She planned and accomplished a large multi-sheet monoprint that addresses the subtleties of luxury fabrics and the fashion world.   She also experimented with drypoint prints made from thousands of minute scratches on plastic plates, that she printed with water-base inks.   This technique, new for her, enabled her to make a small series of journal-like images from her experiences in Nebraska, and then a complex 4 part detailed image of a model on the runway and the audience.   Shiho demonstrated incredible persistence and patience to realize her print projects!   All so impressive for our First Friday visitors.   Thanks for your residency Shiho!
