Miwa Neishi


My art aims to map out the "imaginative organism." It is inspired by searching for connections through interpersonal experiences.
The visual differences among cultures and the variations of the human body are my strongest interests and inspire me to look for the fundamental connections that lie within these differences.
In my work, such differences are presented metaphorically through textures, patterns and color. These lines and growths start to layer on top of each other to create a complex interaction of various ends.
I draw lines with acrylic paint intuitively and spontaneously, similarly to how one writes characters in “Shodo," Japanese traditional calligraphy. 
I hope these images encourage the viewer to enjoy the visual contrasts and deep connections through visual expression.
