About The Artwork

This work is one of the variations in the "Temperature" series that we have been working on for the past few years. The "Temperature" series is motivated by my inspiration given by the color "pink". My repeated use of the color pink has given me many insights. That it is not only the image of flowers and fruits, but also the color of skin, flesh, and internal organs. Our sensitivity, which we may have inherited from our distant hunter-gatherer ancestors, makes us feel life and the vibrancy of life in this color.  I would like to pursue the possibilities of this color to the fullest in my abstract paintings. For this reason, I have included another theme in these works. The subtitle "Genbu" means "Black Tortoise". Byakko is the guardian deity of the northern direction and represents Winter and also Water. These four deities are depicted on the walls of each direction in the wall paintings of 7th century tombs in the Asuka region of Japan. Why do humans paint and decorate walls? One of the answers may be contained in the four deities. Translated with (free version)

Born in Tokyo and live in Tokyo BFA Tama Art University MFA Tama Art University Graduate School, Japanese painting major Chisato Yamada is a painter with 40 years of experience. What she has been pursuing for a long time is to see the invisible. In seeing, in experiencing, in thinking, in feeling, in history, in society, she has pursued an expression that can be seen only through painting. The style of most of her work is abstract, but she also has a style of painting concrete objects. She considers both abstract and figurative to be different routes to the same summit. She is at the same time very interested and attracted to the material of painting itself. She majored in Japanese painting at art college and uses a primitive painting medium called "iwa-enogu," which is made from minerals and other materials that have been used in Japan for centuries. She also uses acrylic paints for their robustness. She also uses a variety of painting materials. Canvas, Japanese paper, and non-painting materials such as polyester fabrics are often used in her work. In her 40 years of painting, she has created a diverse collection. Saatchi Art is pleased to present five of these collections. Please visit the Collections page. "" instagram:@chisatoyamadart
