After the successful interactive installation work: Making Waves - the official event of 'Hokusai, Beyond the Great Wave’ in the Great Court of the British Museum last year, Imada decided to produce a continuity of images - 'Shapes of Water' in different formats. Inspired by Hokusai’s ‘Great Wave’, Imada presents her own approach to ‘Shapes of Water’. Her unique abstract style is very bold and dynamic yet evocative and delicate, seeking to stimulate and broaden the viewer's imagination.

For this exhibition, she has focused on creating print works and drawings using different techniques such as Woodcut, Lithography, Screen Printing, Mokulitho (Plywood lithography), Ink drawing, Watercolour, etc. She often uses Japanese traditional techniques with a contemporary twist and some works are created using traditional Japanese techniques: a hanging scroll and folded screen format.

Imada also has a specific taste and interest in music and here is working again with a young British composer & flutist Nicholas Sabisky specifically for this exhibition collaborating and interacting in forming her works. She hopes that the music and art work together will open up the imagination to deeper levels of understanding.

Nicholas Sabisky and Music 
Sabisky has collaborated with Imada twice previously for shows in Finland. For Shapes of Water, he has composed solo and duo pieces for flute inspired by the different facets of water and Imada’s expressive images. His compositions are a fusion of folk and contemporary based music, exploiting all the natural resources of the flute to create haunting melodies as well as explosive waves of sound. In the duo pieces, he will be performing with Megan Storer. Both are currently studying with international flautist, Wissam Boustany, at Trinity Laban Conservatoire where Sabisky also studies composition with Douglas Finch.
