Born 1950, Japan
Setsuko Onishi Moulton is a Calgary-based printmaker. Born in Japan, she studied French literature in Kobe before immigrating to Canada in 1983. She studied printmaking at the Alberta College of Art and Design, and her work has appeared in a number of solo and group exhibitions in Canada, Japan, and Hong Kong. Her work can be found in a number of private collections, as well as several public art collections in Alberta.
She has said about her art: ’My work comes from both practical elements and subconscious thoughts and feelings I have in every day life. I am interested in indiscernible emotions and ambiguous feelings. The ambiguity equates to middle value colors and spacious relationship in the painting. The act of painting invites me to the world of mysterious and unknown moment: the joy of finding who I am: and finding occasional chances of surprises. That’s what I like about art.’
