Kikuko Morimoto
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Brownsville



ARTIST STATEMENT: When I meditate I connect with what I consider to be the great mystery; that is, what lies deep inside all of us, the essence of what makes us each unique. That mystery is the stillness and the silence within. It is formless, unlimited, full of potential and unconditional love. Through my art, I apply luminosity of color, light, and flow to this mystery. My hope is that the painting allows viewers to connect with that space within themselves. I derive my inspiration and creativity not only from my inner space but also from my surrounding world; the lights in the corridor of the Fulton Street subway station, a young man's iPad screen I happened to glance at, the dining scene from the movie, “The Band’s Visit”. My art is based around shapes and colors and my goal is that the viewer loses him/herself in the color, and merges with the art itself. I want the viewer to have a direct, intimate, primordial, emotional experience. To achieve this, I create large spaces of color in which the viewer can immerse him/herself. To create an organic, natural feeling, I remove the boundary of the traditional rectangular canvas by ripping paper, creating an uneven edge. The color is produced through repeated applications of thin paint. My process is intuitive and accepting of chance.

"In her radiant paintings, Kikuko Morimoto aims to capture the essence of color. Not only the essence of the colors she sees but also the ones she experiences. Her imagination can be triggered by myriad signage in the city, clothes people wear on the street or the reflection from someone’s phone screen on the subway." - Hande Oynar
