Akiko Kuniyoshi


Since I was in university, I have been painting for more than 20 years. I get a sharp movement of my mind like intuition from ordinary things, transform the image in my brain based on my own experience and aesthetic sense, attempt to sketch it on paper, and reconstruct it on canvas. At first glance, the viewer may not know what the content is at all, but the title will provide a hint. These actions may be formats that have already been done to death in terms of art history, but I consider them to be ubiquitous. Furthermore, although my origins are in Japan, it is difficult to find anything Japanese in my work. I experiment with producing paintings that are hard for the viewer to determine the nationality or roots of the artist when they are confronted with my work.
