Through her multimedia installations and sculpture, Mayumi Amada creates elaborate cut-outs representing the patterns of life an dthe repeated forms taht are shared across generations. Using doilies and lacework patterns as a basis for exploring time, her exhibition "Kuon (Eternal Flow of Time) includes delicate forms created from plastic tarps inscribed wiht sampler-style messages such as "OUR LIFE ON EARTH: A BLIP IN ETERNITY." Her aesthetic meditations on gender, ancestry, and craft ponder the mundane amid the ongoing cycles of life, death, and regeneration.
