I create Asteroid G-20 for exhibition "Technological Journey" in October 2020. Unfortunate on opening day announced full lockdown and all planned events was put on hold. This small piece was inspired by G-20 Summit. I upcycle ( creatively reuse ) vintage black fur fabric for the background, hand cut and gilded with metal foil asteroid shape. This contrasting combination create interesting image with strong 3D effect as well as depth in meaning. Very nice and decorative piece.

Originally from Gdansk, Poland, Monika Matsumoto is a contemporary mixed media artist whose artistic carrier began in UK where she lived since 2001. She has diverse background in arts ranging from heritage architectural restoration to fashion to set design. Her experience vary from working as architecture restorer at the heritage sites across Poland and UK, to designing prototypes and working on the projects for scenic & designing London studios whose portfolios extends to such artists as Alexander McQueen, Royal Opera House, Martin Margiela, Louis Vuitton and more. All of this diverse experience really reflects on her art work which consists of textiles, painting, photography, classic techniques of fine arts combined with technology like fibre-optics, lenticular printing, digital media. Her understanding and experience with mixed medium truly makes her unique and exciting artist to look at. ---As a mixed media artist who's focus is on textiles, I feel responsibility for the environmental impact the materials I use have in our world. Fabric literally fills planet to the brim, constituting the well-known problem of utilisation and propulsion. Fast fashion overproduction burdens the environment. The fact is that by producing more than we use, we create waste heaps our world. I tried to think about how I could use this total huge abundance of materials for artistic work. Since I remember I have always collected interesting pieces of fabrics, to be used later, sometimes after years, in a hope to use them in creative composition. This how the project was born. Concept to create from impermanent matter, timeless objects of an artistic. decorative value, and extend hopefully infinitely from the life of matter. ---My creative interest and inspirations come from nature, technology, science, observations, exploring new materials and possibilities. My artistic aim is to create images of balance between nature and technology as a good sign for contemporary future---
