Tomoko HASUWA’s artworks try to indicate that there does exist a world which is parallel to the world around us. By several pieces of artworks in pair which looks so much similar to each other, she implies the culture difference. From an experience traveling to Morocco, she found the female there cover and dress themselves in veil, turban, and traditional Muslim clothes, only revealing their eyes, which is similar to the female in Japan. Though, Japanese girl cover themselves under the hoodie and mask, the similar way to hide themselves in Morocco, that totally has different culture meaning.
She was deeply influenced by the Abstract Expressionism, and she describes herself an old style female living in the contemporary world. She remains lots white and blank of the outlines in her artworks, which seems to make her true-self leaked out from the crack. Only by the white crack can she expresses her soul well and proves her existence.
HASUWA loves hiking. Those direction sign on trees and the clothes on hikers all have Luminous Pink No.187 in common. The color representing brave to herself and support her to face the challenges in life and the missing to her family passed away. Therefore, it can be found HASUWA use lots of the elements in her artworks.
Without any artificial landscape in her works, she makes the green to grow, to extend, and dance in free way. Her artworks are usually part of the view, instead of the full scenery, which capture the extension of the existence and the world in parallel more.
