This event has ended.

Imazu has been working in the media of painting throughout her career, developing a distinct methodology to digitally combine miscellaneous images she collects in her everyday life, as well as numerous found images on Internet. She makes artistic decisions largely on computer, even to the articulation of brush strokes, and then paints the actual canvas using the generated picture as reference. As modern painters reached revolutionary perspectives such as Impressionism and Cubism through deconstruction of paintings provoked by the emergence of photography, Imazu seems to have succeeded in decomposing “painting” and emphasizing the “presence” of motifs by utilizing digital image processing.
