Kunié Sugiura

Since she arrived in the United States from Japan in 1963, Kunié Sugiura has created innovative works that expand the uses of photography while exploring its relationship with drawing and painting. By the early 1970s, she had established the paradigms for her mature work: a lifelong interest in multimedia experimentation and the photographic manipulation of images from nature. In 1980, while searching for a way to make more dynamic drawings, she adopted the classic black and white photogram technique which she has used ever since.


Works by Kunié Sugiura have been exhibited at major museums throughout Japan, Europe, and the United States and are included in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography; the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, among many others.
