Mayu Art Library

Mayumi Kosaka works on painting with oil and water color, creating picture books, and fusing glasses. Her imagination is driven from the nature and she is especially inspired by aspects of water, woods, flowers and animals. Water has many shapes, movements, and sounds, and reflects many colors. Woods and flowers show lights, winds, and seasons. Animals are good companies with the nature. Glasses are good materials to represent light.
Mayumi is not only interested in Impressionism but also Japanese traditional painting technique, like Rimpa School, which affected the late European Impresionism. In Rimpa paintings, all aspects of the nature are simply and abstractly depicted with stylized shapes and lines. The theme is condensed to "Kachofugetu (flower, bird, wind, and the moon)". Mayumi is trying to add Rimpa's essence to her arts.
