The artworks of painter Satsuki Shibuya draw attention to themselves at a first glance; her serene plays of watercolors are extremely simple, yet so complex. Satsuki’s opus is a medium itself that in a minute takes you to some other dimension or sometimes just points out the fact that there’s no need to go further than your inner self to find aspects of existence. Pursuit of motives in Satsuki Shibuya’s work seems so natural and that outcome comes with a great easiness from a peaceful source where Satsuki gathers feelings to transmit on her papers.
She says her work is “based upon intuition, energy and spirit, exploring the realms of the unknown to bridge the gaps between the traditionally tangible and the unseen.” Maybe an abstract art that usually is so obviously underrated in importance, has a much more power than figurative one- there’s no perception offered on plate. Abstract in the case of Satsuki Shibuya has a power to offer the emotions of artist whilst you will have a vast space to think for yourself. And that really creates a special space for an exquisite connection between author and the audience.
