Ikuko Nagai | Petrified Mythology I & II


Matted size = 10 3/4 x 9
Ikuko (Iku) Nagai was born and raised in Japan and emigrated to the San Francisco peninsula after WWII where she developed an abstract expressionism in her artworks. Nagai used multiple techniques to produce her art: painting in mineral pigments she ground herself, gold and silver leaf, water color, etching, drawing, monotype, woodblock, monoprint, and chine colle. Although most of the artworks are prints, you will note that nearly all are unique; very few were created in editions.

The Peninsula Museum of Art, a non-profit for our artistic-loving community, was fortunate to have a home in Burlingame, CA for almost eight years. Unfortunately due to redevelopment planning, our lease was terminated early and while we were looking for a new affordable home, the 2020 COVID pandemic hit and our hopes of finding a new space forced us to reimagine how we showcase artists of the San Francisco/Oakland/San Jose Bay Area.

We now have the opportunity to present artwork to our community, without an admission charge, in a brand new and unexpected space: an indoor shopping mall! The Peninsula Museum of Art will be at Tanforan located in San Bruno, CA but to afford this move, accommodate the drastically reduced storage space, and provide curated show and programming to our visitors, we need to reduce our art collection.

If you are interested in an artwork and are in the Bay Area, we can coordinate a COVID-safe pick-up/drop-off. If you need an item shipped, an agreement of shipping and delivery costs will need to be factored into the purchase price.

Thank you for your support so we can support our San Bruno area community.
