Memories and emotions from the past come together and form the present. Waves of experiences that continuously deliver a new essence and visualization. How the world is seen, but also how the world sees you. Sometimes transparent, sometimes reflective, with tension, closed, but always layered—multiple levels of awareness.
Yoshiko Okada’s artworks are characterized by their emotional depth. Her Japanese background can be clearly seen and felt. Combined with European influences and memories, she is able to evoke tensions and reflections that recur in her works. But the absolute refinement, tranquillity and harmony create a synergy that produces true worldwide recognized masterpieces.
‘Shifting memories’ is a kiln cast and made of optical glass. The images on the glass are sandblasted and the artwork is finished with 23-carat gold leaf. Birds seem like memories wanting to escape from a cloud of thoughts. Together with the light and the viewing angle, reflections are created in and around the image, which gives a continuously different experience. The edition is 4, of which 1 is an artist’s copy.
