Announcing Sue Anne Rische’s Exhibition “Fan Club”

We are pleased to announce an exhibition Fan Club by Sue Anne Rische on July 25(Thu.) to 27(Sat.), as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.

Sue Anne Rische knew from a very early age that she wanted to be an artist. She attended Texas Tech University and the University of Washington, holds a bachelors degree and masters degree in fine art, and currently teaches college level art in Texas. She considers herself both a multi-media artist and a process artist, first visualizing an idea and then assembling the needed materials to create the work.

Two years ago I learned how to make uchiwa from a farmer in Onishi in Gunma Prefecture. Because my work focuses on privacy I chose the fan for its ability to hide your face from people and cameras. In this series I am simply enjoying the process of making and how it focuses and relaxes me. I am also delighting in the manipulation of traditional uchiwa into new and experimental forms. This includes adding modern technology such as LED lights and retro-reflective tape which alters the exposure of a photograph and ruins it for the person who took it without your permission.

Sue Anne Rische (United States) Residence: June to July 2019

Sue Anne Rische knew from a very early age that she wanted to be an artist. She attended Texas Tech University and the University of Washington, holds a bachelors degree and masters degree in fine art, and currently teaches college level art in Texas. She considers herself both a multi-media artist and a process artist, first visualizing an idea and then assembling the needed materials to create the work. Much of her work is repetitive and highly detail oriented, the repetition offering her quiet meditation.Currently she makes artwork about privacy and the pitfalls of sharing anything on the internet.

During her time at Studio Kura she will continue with her work from a previous residency in Japan: the uchiwa as a way to hide your face. She plans to blend imagery from the east and west and may expand the fan into a wearable paper piece.
