The Japanese painter, Naoko Yasue, enters into an enigmatic play in search of her inner expression through the superimposition of images. During this process of self-identification, the composition defines itself through the simultaneous relationship between visual elements that remain from the various phases of painting and the partial cancellation of others, increasing the pictorial vibrations. The use of saturated and intense color in each of its applications describes chromatic fields, spots, brush strokes and abstract solid forms that combined with elements, both symbolic and narrative, objectify figures, animals, words and objects to converge in Naoko’s finished images in an abstract lyrical style with pop contaminations that testify to her time.
