Shio Kusaka at Neutra VDL Research House
By: Karen Bruckner

Responding to the unique architectural environment of Richard Neutra's Los Angeles home and workspace, artist Shio Kusaka has quietly populated this iconic example of domestic mid-century modernism with her signature ceramic vessels, small sculptures of animals, dinnerware and hand-crafted textile designs.  Los Angeles-based Kusaka embraces imperfections and irregularity in her work, and you will see influences from Agnes Martin, Josef Albers and Ellsworth Kelly in some of her newer pieces. Kusaka's pieces will be distributed throughout the shelves, coffee tables and other nooks and crannies of the VDL's interior. Curated by Douglas Fogle and Hanneke Skerath of STUDIO LBV, Los Angeles.
