Yoko Matsumoto (b. 1936) successfully established an original style of pink acrylic painting called "hazy paintings" in '80s. Afterwards, she looked back at oil painting once again and has been making pictures in green oils since 2005. About 50 of her works including oils, acrylics, drawings and water-colors were exhibited in "The Light: MATSUMOTO Yoko / NOGUCHI Rika" show at the National Art Center Tokyo in Roppongi, last year, 2009.
The exhibition at our gallery this time will present her recent drawings. Matsumoto's drawings have dynamism of charcoal, which partly turns to appear as looming sites on the paper, lightness of colors in pastel and loping lines across the surface. It is the fact that her drawings are inseparable from her oil or acrylic paintings, however, it stands as "picture" in its own right.
We hope that you will enjoy the polished drawings- pictures in our gallery.
