Tomoko Yamaguchi - Chair

Tomoko Yamaguchi - Chair
Acrylic on canvas - 2004

Size: 91 x 72,7 cm
Ýamaguchi Tomoko was born in 1977 in Hyogo, Japan. Her paintings combine the joy of life (eros) and momentarily frozen landscapes (thanatos) in a vividly realistic manner informed by an everyday sensibility. There is no grand drama based on fictional qualities, and the figures, objects, animals, and landscapes that Yamaguchi depicts are mirrors that reflect the self. She takes mental images from a private area of primal sensations (the real world), upon which everyday life continually impinges. Her paintings are the result of the process of self healing carried out in an ímaginary world', so the making of art is an absolute necessity to her. Source: Takayo IIDA, independent curator.
