Reiko Kinoshita 2019, 20×20cm

In Reiko Kinoshita’s atelier, there is a large window where the plum blossoms underneath the eyes and the ever-changing sky color spread like a screen. She puts the paper on the window and “makes” it with sunlight, but in the side, it will look like a piece of tanned paper scattered randomly. Kinoshita’s work is an act of trying to express the continuation of time, using photographic paper exposed to sunlight, paper tanning, folds and folds, and fog-like paint diffused from airbrushes as media. When I announced my work in 2017, “Is it possible to make a picture of the passage of time, not a picture or video? ”As she notes, works using photographic paper are drawn and controlled by her hand, but there is a“ possibility to be further added ”by the light of the sun. It will continue after reaching the handIt is established with. (Although there is no real change, photographic paper continues to be sensitized.) Also, works using tanning are like a round-trip letter exchanged between the artist’s work that repeats daily and the phenomenon of sunlight. Existence. These works are produced in the context of art, but at the same time, they are attractive because they are both crafted and familiar. This may be because there are acts of people who feel the “life” such as creases and folds as the material of the work, and the artist’s actions feel a longing for “aging”. The title of the exhibition “Samurai” means longing and thinking. Reiko Kinoshita’s work takes you to a journey of imagination somewhere that is not here-by noting and showing the trivial being overlooked in your life.
