Kayo Albert
Kew Gardens, NY
Neighborhood: Williamsburg



ARTIST STATEMENT: Deeply influenced by Carl Jung and Abstract Expressionism, I am interested in our ability to store incredible amount of perceivable data in our subconscious mind. And the ability to connect with people in subliminal level.
I imagine having invisible rhizome nourished by memories dreams, images and ideas stored deep under the ground which is connecting with others to share emotion or beauty without boundaries.
My work is built on processes - process of executing my craft and that of natural phenomena such as erosion by the flow of water and wind. Fluidity of paints and organic rhythm of drawing builds layers to resemble landscape so I call it “Emotional Landscape.”
Mylar is the surface I mainly work on because of the transparency and lightness of it - unpainted sections on painting give airy openness, white becomes a color instead of background. The pieces are mounted on wood panel. Its wood grains appear through Mylar where unpainted which enhances organic tone.
Currently working on series “Haganfusui – 葉岩風水: painting with the element of plant, rock, wind and water incorporated in the abstraction” inspired by Japanese dry-landscape garden “Kare san sui.” Mimicking nature, I would like to see how much I can expand one’s creative limits. Since the participation in Governor's Island Art Fair last year, my work is evolving towards installation with 2D and 3D site-specific pieces. Mylar is largely extended its durability and flexibility to form various shapes and sizes.
