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.

Sawako Nasu

Sawako Nasu

Profile

Sawako Nasu

Born in Tokyo, Japan, 1996

Education
2021
Oil Painting course, Department of Painting, Tokyo University of the Arts 
2021-present
Master’s Course Laboratory of Oil Painting I, Tokyo University of the Arts Graduate School 

Tokyo University of the Arts – Kaichi Ohashi Memorial Award Scholarship certified

Concept

Sawako Nasu uses the language of painting to talk about distance, connection, and relationship. When reflecting on her own work, Nasu says, “How can I touch old paintings?” Underlying Nasu’s work is a sense of the absolute, unbridgeable distance that lies between the classical and modernist paintings she admires and their times and herself today, and it is this sense of distance that gives her art its thorough vision.
Nasu’s approach to the possibilities of painting by contrasting the era of classical painting with the era to which she herself belongs as a modern artist, goes beyond the scope of her personal interests and reflects a contemporary awareness of what is possible at the edge of art history, which is constantly being renewed.

Yumi Nagata

Yumi Nagata

Profile

Yumi Nagata

Born in Tokyo, Japan, 1997

Education
2021 Tama Art University Japanese Painting Course

Concept

Nagata’s work is created upon a denial toward herself for drawing girls, which is her most focus, as objects in pictures. Through her work, she expresses her conflict state of mind – her paintings are a series of affirmations and negations, and they are tinged with contradictions.
Nagata states, “My work is a seek of painting which can be done by a person grew up in‘Nijigen (ACG – subculture) generation, and it is a refracted resistance and challenge to the history of Japanese art and contemporary art.”
