Tokyo-based Kei Imazu’s paintings are heightened by the flurry of soft hues the artist has used. After making a collage, she transforms it from hew own point of view. Some sceneries are like melted while the others are like collapsed. But there’s a smoothness and elegance to her smears that take it beyond the glitchy.
Kei draws on classical imagery by painting a scenery created after digitally reassembling images collected from the internet, magazines or her own living space. She enjoys the colors and shapes of the motifs. She shifts our view to see all objects’ aesthetics and the entire composition.
