Maeko Sato "Where the Catchers Are"

This event has ended.

Mariko Sato creates her paintings with oil sticks, using the entire gallery space as her canvas. By being physically surrounded with paper and being close as possible to what she is drawing, she visualizes a particular landscape found in between the "inside" of what is drawn on paper, and the "outside" of painting, namely where we stand.

Sato's creative process puts her in a heightened state of consciousness, in which she engages in a dialogue with the piece. She listens to the sound it makes as she places her oil stick on paper, and travels through the "inside" and "outside" of her work in the process of making it. Noting that "humans live only for some decades, but a painting continues to exist for hundreds of years," she controls her process of painting by considering its long span of life.

This installation will be completed 10 days after the exhibition's opening. Sato will be working on the piece while the gallery is closed at night.
