Tanaka Chisato– suite de la biographie

Ses toiles parlent de vie et de mort, de passé et de présent, de rêves et de réalité. Ces oppositions se retrouvent d’ailleurs aussi dans la structure de ses œuvres, par la gestion du plein et du vide – très présent dans ses grandes toiles – mais aussi par l’utilisation de couleurs vives contrastant avec le fond noir.

Chisato Tanaka crée un monde mystérieux, peuplé de figures enfantines à l’aspect fantomatique, de bateaux proches du naufrage, de déesses nordiques qui laissent le spectateur dérouté, comme à la sortie d’un rêve.

Son travail a fait l’objet de nombreuses expositions au Japon et en Asie.
