Biography from Ketterer Kunst, Munich:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Machiko Edmonson began her artistic training in 1981 at the Tama Arts University in Tokyo, where she earned her degree in 1985.  Since 1989, she has lived in London and attended the Camberwell College of Arts from 1989 to 1992.  She then enrolled at the prestigious Goldsmiths College in London from 1993 to 1995.  Here Machiko Edmonson graduated in 1995 with a Master of Fine Arts.

Machiko Edmondson is known for larger than life, photo-realistic close-up paintings of known faces.  `Cascade` created in 2013 is a characteristic work of the artist.  In technical virtuosity it shows the strong Japanese capped face of a young girl.  Particular emphasis is on the eyes that send such an intense look that the viewer is immediately in the wake of the image.  And yet these same eyes look unreal, as if generated on the computer.  This also applies to the pristine beauty and the smoothness of the skin.  With the almost superhuman perfection of their facial images Machiko Edmondson reflects the superficial and distorted ideals of beauty, as they are transported in the age of digital image processing by advertising and fashion photography.

Machiko Edmondson proves not only her artistic virtuosity, but also a critical and profound spirit.  Since the early 1990s she has been in many group exhibitions in London and others together with Peter Doig and Alex Katz.  In 1995 Edmondson recorded her first solo exhibition at the Circuit Gallery by Hardwork, London.  This is followed by further exhibitions in New York, Athens and Toronto.  Her works are represented among others in Joao Tovar Collection USA / Monaco and the Sander collection .
