Chisato Yamada is a painter with 40 years of experience based in Tokyo Japan.
What she has been pursuing for a long time is to see the invisible. In seeing, in experiencing, in thinking, in feeling, in history, in society, she has pursued an expression that can be seen only through painting. The style of most of her work is abstract, but she also has a style of painting concrete objects. She considers both abstract and figurative to be different routes to the same summit.
She is at the same time very interested and attracted to the material of painting itself. She majored in Japanese painting at art college and uses a primitive painting medium called "iwa-enogu," which is made from minerals and other materials that have been used in Japan for centuries. She also uses acrylic paints for their robustness. She also uses a variety of painting mediums. Canvas, Japanese paper, and non-painting materials such as polyester fabrics are often used in her work.
In her 40 years of painting, she has created a variety of collections. These include a series of bold compositions based on sketches of landscapes, a series of paintings on cotton fabrics from either side or both sides, a series of paintings on translucent polyester fabrics from both sides, a Magic Hour series that weaves home-town scenes into abstract shapes, and a series of abstract expressions with pink as the main color.
The following list is a history of her published works to date. Her pursuit of painting will continue in the future.
