    Portrait of a lady -oil on canvas 65 x 53 cm


    Masayo Masuda


    ​I lay on my canvas, flat, solid colors as if they were pieces of brightly colored origami papers. 

    Some people say my paintings are like the traditional Japanese paintings, especially those by the Rinpa School. 

    Therefore, this is one aspect of my paintings: oil painting with a taste of Japanese painting. 

    I also believe that all object of my paintings have their own personalities, may it be a flower or grass, stone or water or air, or even the Universe. 

    I imagine what they are thinking now and what they are feeling. 

    I speak to them as I reveal their shapes on my canvas. 

    Then, I find myself together with my models, all of us floating in the Universe. 

    "Everything is I, and everything is the Universe itself" I hope to sublimate my life into the creative world of Masayo Masuda and present them to you.
