About

Miho Watanabe has been working as a professional commercial/editorial photographer, which led her to create her artworks using photography. Recently graduated Master by Research in Fine Art at Art & Design, UNSW, creating artworks for Miho is creating “Awareness of Between-ness”, which is the doorway to the concealed realm. Her work creates photography as a means of memory and painting as a means of connection in between reality and the concealed realm. She uses photography, painting, and mixed media to explore the concept of ‘between-ness’ and attempts to create the ‘invisible’ subject ‘visible’.
