Chikako Kato (JP), 2014-15

10.12 1973 born in Hokkaido, Japan. Lives and works in Trier.

Chikako Kato's works require on the one hand a very close look on the part of the observer in order to grasp all the details, but on the other hand are also convincing in their overall view as a well thought-out composition. The overarching theme is resistance, without which no communication is possible.

Resistance in the physical sense as an electronic component can therefore also be found as a recurring element in her paintings. Smallest technical beings applied in subtle painting technique on monochrome primed picture carriers want to be deciphered.
