JAPAN, 1959

In keeping with the phrase, “Sho and paintings are fundamentally the same,” the origin of characters lies in pictography, and both sho and painting are considered to share the same roots.
Yoko Emi gives full play to her thoughts about the origin of characters and their changes and development over the course of human evolution and history, and she produces her works by sublimating the images she receives from these characters (including kanji and ancient scripts) into her creations. In addition, she pursues stereoscopic lines with the glossy look and the calm and mysterious beauty of flowing marks formed by blurs of pale sumi ink.
