Naomi Shiga's works, created with mixed techniques such as woodblock collage and drawing, give us a nostalgic yet new sensation.
Please enjoy the world of Naomi Shiga, who cuts out and expresses sounds and sensations that we tend to overlook in our daily lives from her unique perspective.
ARTIST'S INTRODUCTION / STATEMENT
The warmth of the sun through the trees and the sound of whistling coming from somewhere.
The glare of light shining back from the ground under a clear sky and the feeling of dizziness
Flowers swaying in the breeze and the anxious feeling before a storm
The cold air and the tense, tense smell of the morning.
As a record of the memory of such a moment
I want to make a painting of what remains behind the figurative surface as much as possible
I would like to make a picture of what I see through the surface of the painting.
It is very difficult to put order to a common and familiar scene, and to make it into an iconic image,
I scrap the images that are created with an awareness of not over-intending,
I would like to make the temperature and the sound that the picture remembers visible.
I am trying to capture in various ways the things that are right in front of my eyes, but which are difficult to grasp and scoop up.
