Asako Tabata’s paintings begin from vague ideas, a thought or a memory, and grow through the process of painting, becoming the heart of the composition. If the flow of the idea changes, she allows the change to lead the creative process and give meaning to the work, sometimes in unexpected points and surprising forms. Her paintings and sculptures are unique specifically because of their intense expression of a pervasive sense of being cut-off and a weighted aloneness. Either unframed or with frames that are handcrafted and seemingly slapped-together, her expressions are singularly poignant works. Her sculptures are equally notable revelations of the secrets that we bear, the pain that we feel and our attempts to retreat from society.
