Lasting Memories through the Transient Experience of Glass.


Miyao’s artwork is a gradation of scenery which changes with every moment depending on the angle of the light passing through it. His art is the atmosphere you experience at the very moment of your encounter. Miyao selects photos based on nostalgia and travel, and leverages the undulating look created by subtle variations in the thickness of the glass to express a feeling of memory and the presence of emotional scenes.

Miyao feels the wisdom of human beings there, giving a soft, gentle impression to the objects without impairing the permeability of inorganic glass or reducing its unique coolness.Those who see Miyao’s work may experience childhood memories of their hometown and the scenery of their youth. His artworks are perfect for a high-rise office window or a quiet study. The world seen through glass will remind those living the hustle and bustle of city life what is truly important, providing comfort and calm. One will surely not be able to part with work that offers such a journey through time.

Miyao believes the necessity of 'shape' and the necessity of 'thing' arise in the work. There are various ways of expressing glass materials, yet for Miyao, the essence of glass resides in its transparency and smoothness. He does not run away from its sense of beauty. And he seeks to not leave a trace.
