About Satomi Sugimoto

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: ARTIST STATEMENT :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

I have always been attracted to forms and lines since I was a child. Everything in the world has those fundamental elements and I see the undeniable beauty through them, regardless of whether it's natural or artificial. My art-making is a spiritual process; a search for the essence of objects and a process of purification where a single element is explored, honed and expressed.
