About Artist
Japanese artist lzumi Kon reconstructs images from fashion pages or advertisements of magazines. She paints the objects that she is attracted to; such as sushi, vegetables, shoes, cosmetics, jewelry, chairs. Their places in her heart are materialized into painting. She paints in detail with acrylic, watercolor and ink. The works are unique in size, on a panel with a cotton cloth mount. While the color and texture suggests classical Japanese elements, Kon works with contemporary motifs. Capturing a glimmer in consumer items such as fashion articles and food,once through Kon's sensibility, the banal objects turns into the mysterious and the beauty. The relationship between the spaces and the work in her installation is considered as unique and brilliant.
