東山 詩織 Shiori Higashiyama

Shiori Higashiyama
Born in 1990, Higashiyama employs a technique of repetitively depicting a single motif in a pattern-like manner, a practice she began during her university years.

Trees planted to divide urban spaces, tents serving as mobile homes, and sports courts - the way they stand together conjures images of formations used in battles to ensure safety or arrangements created for sports strategies.

Higashiyama has increasingly chosen tents as her motif, especially after natural disasters. This choice reflects her personal experiences and observations in her daily life. She views tents and city-planted trees as buffers that connect people without completely blocking the sense of distance. She believes that maintaining this kind of spatial distance is a method for protecting oneself from psychological stress. Consequently, the figures she paints all gather or stand with relaxed expressions. Some of them hold smartphones or tablets, attempting to connect with the outside world through gestures and movements that continue to evolve in the modern era.

In her recent works, there is an attempt to abstract the repetitively depicted motifs as a sequence of colors or to create a different space by adding a mesh-like layer.
