Enna Ikuta is a Japanese-American artist based in Los Angeles. Through material abstraction, she explores themes of sentimentality, introspection, and transience in forms of objects, installations and garments. She finds inspiration from the world around her, drawing heavily from both natural landscapes and through interpersonal relationships. With a background in dance, Ikuta developed a deep sense of abstract communication through motion and energy at an early age, a non-verbal expression that serves as a foundation in her practice.

She works primarily with natural fiber and dyes, studying the innate characteristics of each material in order to push the boundaries in how it can be manipulated. Each artwork is a product of her process, a search for unconventional ways of manipulating materials to create experiences that catalyze reflective thought.
