Setouchi Art Book Fair

SABF 2019 Information image

I am excited to announce that I am one of eight Art Byte Critique artists participating at the Setouchi Art Book Fair (October 25 – 27, 2019) in Takamatsu, Kagawa Prefecture. The book fair coincides with the last weekend of the Setouchi Triennale. Looks like there will be lots of great art books. I’m really looking forward to seeing new books and meeting more creators.

You can check out the Art Byte Critique members’ Instagram posts for possible updates on our projects for the fair.

    Moonchaser–photography exhibition

    September is moon viewing month in Japan (月見) and I will be sharing selected photos of moon chasing and night photography at Neighbourhood and Coffee Okusawa, a Starbucks Reserve cafe 3 minutes away from the south exit of Jiyugaoka station.

    This ongoing project began in 2012. So far, locations include Japan and the United States. I’m currently working on a book of moon and night photography for the Setouchi Art Book Fair held in Takamatsu as part of the Setouchi Triennial 2019 where I’ll be with Art Byte Critique.

    Enjoy the night, lovely coffee and the great people at Neighbourhood and Coffee.

    Snow Fences is at Starbucks Okusawa 2 Chome Store in Time for the Heat.

    The photos are up!

    Last night after closing I got to hang the photos while staff prepared the shop for the next day.

    I want to thanks the staff for being so great and for the manager, Nakano-san for the opportunity.

    If you check out Snow Fences, please feel free to  share pictures and tag me at loriono_thespendypencil on Instagram or @thespendypencil on twitter!

    I hope you enjoy photos of cold snowy days during this hot weather!

    The 2 Chome Starbucks store is a 3 minute walk from Jiyugaoka’s south exit.

    If you see some work that you like, prints are for sale at my web shop. I will change the prints weekly so check out the web shop often. If you are interested in something at Starbucks that you don’t see on the web shop please contact me!

    EDIT: 2020.
    I’m currently taking a break from selling prints from Big Cartel but you can still see some work there. If you’re interested in prints please contact me directly.
