Kayoko Kimura

Bron in Tokyo in 1971. Obtained M.F.A. from Tokyo University of the Arts.

She selects flowers with beautiful and interesting forms from her research at botanical gardens and other places, and draws shapes by overlapping lines with a thin brush, utilizing the presence of the flowers without unnecessarily beautifying them.

The deep depth of the base layer, created by applying layers of paint, gives the painting a unique texture that contrasts sharply with the detailed and vividly painted motifs. In the rise and fall of flowers’ hidden energy, she explores a new concept of flowers, incorporating universal themes such as space, time, life, and death into her paintings.
