有田 京子 Kyoko Arita

有田 京子

1990年生まれ、2009年よりYellow(泉佐野市)にて制作活動を行う。
ユーモアに溢れ作業所のムードメーカー的存在だが、作品制作に向かう際は驚くべき集中力を発揮する。作品は、細かな点描によって、身の回りのモチーフを反復させ、オールオーバーに描かれる。また、独自の規則性にのっとり、重層的に区分けと色分けがされ、図と地が逆転するような視覚効果も持つ。緻密な作業による密度の高い作品だが、どこか作家の人柄を映すような女性的な温かみとユーモアも兼ね備えている。

Kyoko Arita

Kyoko Arita (born 1990) has been making artworks at Yellow (Izumisano, Osaka) since 2009.
She has a great sense of humor and is popular among her colleagues. Once she starts to make work, Arita demonstrates incredible concentration. Taking things from her daily life as motifs, she makes fine stipple drawings that are entirely filled with the repetition of these motifs. She has a particular rule, dividing the drawing plane into many small sections and applying colours and stipples on each of them repeatedly. This process creates a visual effect of foreground and background constantly switching back and forth within her drawings. While being highly dense and precise, Arita’s drawings possess feminine warmth and a sense of humor reflecting the persona of the artist.
