Overviews

Yurina Okada creates new two-dimensional works that interweave painting and photographic techniques. Her work is based on the belief that “everything decays,” which makes the intentionally applied cracks in the picture plane relevant to the Japanese aesthetic of “beauty of imperfection.

Okada’s work makes a statement about the problem of superficiality of two-dimensional works such as “Faktura” of the Russian avant-garde from a Japanese perspective.
