Soft Summer Breeze

The Japanese collage artist Fumika Sato’s love for hemp canvas gives me another soft summer breeze. Although I sometimes have an impression that her work drifts on a chaotic sea of uncertainty, there is a warmth of a human hand like the sense I can always feel from craftwork.

Using beads, threads, liquid gel ink, acrylic paint and needlework, her collection seems to masterfully play with light and shadow and I believe that the combination use and her extensive knowledge about materials brings a flow effect on every piece of the collection.

Her style is a bit romantic, sensitive, vague and actually flexible. “I am very conscious of when and where to make my art, and my life has changed a lot since I got married and lately moved into countryside from city— I love that the change has activated my creativity and I see something from fresh and positive aspects” said Sato. I fully recognize that she is an observer blending into the environment so that her work is always lyrical and beautifully-colored.
