Etsuko Ichikawa investigates what lies between the ephemeral and the eternal through the use of glass, paper, fiber, video, and sound. Her ‘pyrographs’ and ‘aquagraphs’ are drawings made by fire and water, capturing and eternalizing the immediacy of a moment. The format of her work varies from small two-dimensional images to large-scale installations and performance-based work.


Multi-media artist Etsuko Ichikawa has completed several artist in residence programs at the Pilchuck Glass School and has been recognized by the Andy Warhol Foundation for Visual Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts. She has received numerous grants and awards, including Dave Bown Projects, Pollock Krasner Foundation grant. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally, including The Ueno Royal Museum in Tokyo, the Henry Art Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and Seattle Art Museum.
