We are pleased to present a solo exhibition of Sakiki Matsumura, a young artist living in Kyoto.
Matsumura is a graduate of Kyoto University of Art and Design, Master of Fine Arts, Painting Area, and has won awards such as "Turner Acrylic Gouache Biennale 2017" and "Tokyo Wonder Seed 2017", and has also participated in "ART OSAKA 2017", which was exhibited from DMOARTS, " ART FAIR SAPPORO 2017", and exhibited at "ART AWARD TOKYO MARUNOUCHI" and "ARTISTS' FAIR KYOTO", she is an artist whose activities are attracting increasing attention.
Matsumura's works are created using painting, silkscreen, and stencil techniques. The graphical composition of the screen, which combines irregular lines and figures, is distinctive and gives a solid impression. By layering several different layers of iconography on the screen, the work intentionally creates a sense of visual distortion. An illusion that harmonizes within the painting, we invite you to view this work.
