With excitement and ushering hands, Kochi Kochi translates from Japanese slang as a polite way of saying ‘Come over here and have a look at this!’. Enthusiasm for surpises inspired Marie Jones to adopt it as the moniker and motive for her ideas let contemporary art practice.

Marie has always had a curiosity for these KOCHI KOCHI! moments and our gut reactions to them. They are unexpected and carry great significance to want to share them with others. Re-contextualising traditional domestic craft techniques, Marie uses scale and vivid colours to augment and communicate these curious narratives through her work.

With a past in Graphic Arts and lecturing in higher education Marie combines this with her skills learnt from a large family of makers to create a practice that sits at the intersection of Art, Craft & Design.
