True Lights

Kimiko Yoshida

In this new series, Yoshida interacts with her own printed self-portraits with acrylics as if the canvas were Roschach’s paper test. In a contemporary battle, the abstract figures, colorful paint over her self-portraits, make those invisible and indistinguishable, bringing some intimate light into each hidden image. As a matter of fact, Yoshida likes to say that “Art is above all the experience of transformation. Transformation is the ultimate value of the work. To me, art has become a space of shifting metamorphosis. My self-portraits are the place and the formula of the mutation”.
