ARTIST Ayaka Shirota
The main theme is imaginary landscapes. Rather than being abstract, he incorporates familiar spaces into the world and expresses spaces that are not tied to a time axis or reality that is completely different from the current world in which he exists, giving a sense of déjà vu but also a sense of incongruity. Make others remember. I use oil paintings to capture the small emotional changes, traumas, and anxious thoughts that I experience in my daily life.I also use charcoal to create collages as a unique expression because people in the world of mental landscapes are mixed together not as matter but as souls and pure objects. It has been administered to the world of painting as such. The world she depicts speaks not only to individuals, but also to others and the world.
