Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Hikari Shimoda

''My motif is children whose ages are around ten to fifteen years old. Their attempt to adjust themselves to the modern environment in our time seems to be a hard battle to me. Also, they are living in an unstable time between being a child and a being an adult. I pick up their warped attitude or feeling toward the outer world and express it through their physical body which has not been balanced yet.

Through their unstable presence, I can express deep feelings I have inside, such as grief, alienation, and love. I believe that adults who were once a child feel compassion with the children I paint.''
