“…. We Japanese sometimes say that there is something mysterious, an invisible force in nature. I feel this is so, I try to show this invisible, all encompassing force through my work. I would like viewer to feel enveloped by the mysteries of nature when they see my work.”
Agano created a stunning installation with Textural Space by combining nylon filament, silk thread and handmade Japanese paper.
A work of painstaking craftsmanship, realized with knitting techniques and 15mm thick needles, this untitled installation defied the easy categorisation of mere ‘textile art’ by exploring the 3D potentials – and the evocative powers – of light, shade and texture in a gallery space.

I felt like I was wearing a hat
I was really moved by the beauty of the piece. For me it was like spirals of foam on an incoming tide – lovely
Like frozen rain-drops
