〈On the Exhibition〉
8/ ART GALLERY/ Tomio Koyama Gallery is pleased to present Makiko Kudo’s exhibition to commemorate the publication of “Turning”, Makiko Kudo’s catalogue. This is the second show of the young Japanese artist series, following Toru Kuwakubo. With her primitive brushwork, she paints the world she has actually seen and experienced such as plants, trees and rivers she sees while walking, a house she used to live in, cats, the moon in the sky, and a dreamy girl, creating somewhat lonely and fleeting fantasy, yet recalling the sweet memories of the past in the paintings. Developing multifarious surfaces simultaneously, bold compositions and free touch of her paintings sometimes display the memories of a childhood sensitivity, giving viewers a fresh impression. At this exhibition, her new works of various sizes are showcased. Please enjoy her world of imagination.
