Rie Taniguchi

Rie draws her inspiration freely from everything she sees, reads and hears. Her main interests and concerns, centre around wildlife and the environment whilst exploring the relationship between those with humans.

The process begins with Rie drawing the animals from photographs and films before developing these drawings from memory and then developing these into softer shapes using Britannia silver. These softer forms, and physically moveable pieces bring an element of playfulness and sense of humour to her work.
