Sakurado Fine Arts is thrilled to present Anne Kagioka Rigoulet’s third solo exhibition with the gallery to be held through December 9th to 24th 2016. In her series ‘Reflection’, Kagioka introduces the viewers to her abstract vision when perceiving the surface of water. Rendered in a rich colour palette, Kagioka combines oil and fabric with graffito, a technique employed in mural decor, so as to add an enhanced materiality and sculptural weight to her paintings. Presented in ‘Reflection: 2015-16’ is Reflection v-25, her latest and largest work on panel to date, which highlights her ceaseless attempt to crystallize the dynamic and intricate movement of water.
Born in 1987, Kagioka received her B.A. in oil painting and M.A. in mural painting from Tokyo University of the Arts in 2013. She then traveled to France to attend ENSAAMA (National School of Applied Arts and Arts Crafts) to study fresco/mosaic art and furthered her studies at Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts. Kagioka lives and works in Paris and Kamakura.
