Tomoko Kashiki Exhibition
This event has ended.
Ota Fine Arts is pleased to announce the second solo exhibition of Tomoko Kashiki, starting from 26th November. Kashiki completed her Ph.D. at the Graduate School of Art (painting) at Kyoto City University of Arts this spring, and currently lives and works in Kyoto.
Her flat, smooth textures and flowing lines bear a strong resemblance to Japanese paintings at first sight. However, all of her paintings are created using acrylic, and manage to achieve a smooth surface and layer upon layer of color through an original, repetitive process: painting on canvas, sanding down, and painting again. Her characteristic style is reminiscent of Modern paintings or Buddhist paintings from the Heian Period, even those by Shoen Uemura or Seihou Takeuchi. It may have been inspired by the city of Kyoto, where she was born and spending all her life.
This year, Kashiki participated in "Bye Bye Kitty!!!" (curated by David Elliott) at the Japan Society in New York, as well as the Yokohama Triennale 2011.
