Tomoko Kawachi



Tomoko Kawachi (Chiba, Japan, 1974) was educated at the Musashino Art University, Tokyo (1994-2000). She worked in 2005 and 2006 at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten, Amsterdam.  In her work she explores the very different ways in which one can see everyday utensils. She tries, as unbiased as possible, to observe their surroundings and then she paints in a loose style without much foresight, in large formats. Her Japanese heritage is undeniable and her paintings are a real battleground, where elements from different cultures collide.
