CHiKA is a Japanese-born, New York-based New Media Artist. Creating minimalist geometric
shapes and visuals that explore in dark space and inviting people to reinvent themselves through
the relationship between objects and images.
Fine Art Photographer based in Red Hook Brooklyn working in Digital and Analog film medium from
35mm to 8x10 film with an emphasis on night time imagery and provocative interpretations of
contemporary society and our place in it.
I shoot overlapping multiple exposure photography, panoramic in shape, with a plastic camera (Holga). These unplanned juxtapositions capture my experience of a particular time and place and at the same time have an identity all their own.
My work consists of paintings, drawings and photographs reflective of the many places I've lived, worked or visited in and around Brooklyn, its historic landscape and as well as the people I've met, and continue to meet, along the way.
I employ traditional lace making to render protective structures laced from thread and rope; as well as unconventional embroidery to create works on paper representing interior spaces and the outdoor paths leading to those spaces.
