This event has ended.
Katayama has focused her practice upon paintings of abstracted images, referencing specific historical figures as a motif. In her creative process, the artist uses a unique color chart controlled by number and color combinations, finds birth and death dates of the person chosen for the theme along with the recorded weather of these dates, and replaces the numerical values into colors then rendered into paintings. In Madame Curie Chronology, Katayama will showcase many new pieces from her “Birthday and Death Anniversary” series with Madame Curie and her associates as subjects, along with the “Collision” series where two canvas drawings come together, and additional drawings.
