Mami Kato

Mami Kato, born in northern Japan, majored in oil painting and sculpture in colleges in Tokyo and Philadelphia College of Arts (currently University of Arts). After graduating from there, she resides in Tokyo and continues producing work and showing at various galleries in Tokyo. After living several years in Tokyo, she then moved back to Philadelphia, PA, USA. Now living and working there since 1992. Her works have been shown in galleries, art fairs, institutions, and museums worldwide, and she has works in private & corporate and museum collections including the Philadelphia Museum of Art. 


Mami Kato’s patience and sustained focus result in sculptures that are mysterious, breathtakingly beautiful, and quiet. Building concentrated forms that seem to almost have their own gravitational field. With powerful internal rhythms, rippling edge to edge or coursing upwards from the floor through a complex knot and eventually meeting the wall. The materials she selects keep with the impression of constant flow. Her aim is to reach deeper, evoking the energy of the sun that settles upon the earth, growing into elds and passing onto all of us.
