From Nihonga to Nihonga: Kumi Machida


Kumi Machida’s ink paintings are currently showing at MOT, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo as part of the No Borders, From Nihonga to Nihonga exhibition. Drawn using India ink and pigment on fine flaxen paper, Kumi Machida uses an extraordinary network of brush lines, created through the repetition of numerous fine lines.

Ultra-modern fatties meets Victorian sadism in an dystopian biogenetic-obsessed anti-society. I don't quite know how to feel when I look at the paintings.

    Goodness. Look at the petals coming from her ears. She’s trying to blossom but it’s not allowed.
