somewhere

 

La composición simple de lineas y formas minimalistas de Yuko Murata está influenciada por la pintura tradicional japonesa del siglo XVIII. El objeto de sus cuadros proviene de postales antiguas, folletos turísticos y enciclopedias. Murata desviste imagenes de objetos y lugares especificos y las convierte en pinturas que flotan en el espacio y podrían pertenecer a cualquier lugar.

Yuko Murata's simple compositions of minimal lines and forms are deeply influenced by 18th Century Japanese paintings, when artists were challenged to create an artwork with minimum colours and objects. The subjects in her paintings are derived from existing photos such as old post cards, tourist leaflets, and encyclopaedias. Murata strips these images of their original purpose and transforms them from photographs of specific places and things into pictures of 'somewhere' and animals that could be anywhere at all.
