Summer 2021 Award Winner Artist Rmoo
Rmoo was born and raised in Aomori. After she narrowly escaped the 1995 Sarin incident, she went abroad.
For a certain time, “them”… came out… on her artworks. It is hard to express in words. She did not have the courage. What “them” shows… is perhaps the energy waves, spirit, intuition, and a sense of feeling from others that appear on her canvas. She kept hiding and painting.
If she does not see any of “them” painting some small works, they are considered as“interior art”. Her beloved motif “Flower・Clouds・Pottery・Animals” – are rented and sold at the rental company, Casie.
“Landscapes” – She incorporates all the thoughts of one day and all memories of one places. Mother Nature is also a major influence in her works, but the colors that appear in the back of her eyelids when she wakes up every morning determines the color(s) of the day.
She values her interactions with the brushes hardness, paints and other tools that change depending on weather.
Her art activities are centered on solo exhibitions – done 2-5 times a year. Although her works are thin oil paintings that are closer to classical paintings, they are styles of modern art.
