BIO/CV

    Trained as an architect, Machiko Weston moved from architectural model-making into production design and fine art in 2004. Her miniatures and design work have featured in stage productions in the London West End, on Broadway, and many others. In her artwork, Machiko explores ideas of perception, fragility, and the meaning of “realism.” Her photography and installations are influenced by the connections she perceives between Japan and the British Isles.
