Born in Tokyo, Japan. based in New York.
Rihomi Sato’s central concern is humans and their thoughts as instincts as desires , impulses,
complexities, and identities. She seeks truths through painting, drawing, and mixed media.
She use unique motif, materials comes from own Japanese identity which mixture of old
Japanese tradition, culture and new modern life.
She challenges to create new perspective of composition which inspired by Japanese old paintings, combine huge empty space and some complex part on picture or use same couple of motifs to make a rhythm on picture. Also she recently combine drawing and sewing on canvas to create organic shape work to climb over art traditional square shape and limit of canvas. It is describing how this world is being complex than past.
She considers how people interact and deal with their environment, whether natural or artificial and contrived, using product magazines, pictures, plastic, fabric also unnecessary paintings. She synthesizes the mundane with ephemeral thought, exploring contrasting perspectives and meanings through her art. Rihomi’s work is driven by spontaneity. It embraces the unexpected as an opportunity to comprehend both humanity’s and her own driving interests.
