▲.This is my favorite one of her.
I wrote a post about one of my favorite artists, Mark Ryden before. Now I am posting another one, Shiori Matsumoto. Actually, I could find Mark Ryden through her website. She is also surrealism artist. OH! and now I’m a facebook friend with her!!!!! So excited!!!
When I saw her paintings first, I was just soooo impressed. Because they are so beautiful with colors and there are girls in every painting. I really enjoy paintings with girls who have cold expressionless faces such as paintings of Frida kahlo, Mark Ryden, and Shiori. They are not crying or smiling in paintings. But, when I see those paintings, I could feel something inside of them beyond the cold faces. I don’t know exactly what the artists wanted to say and what they thought. But, they always make me feel something so complicated and mixed. And, They are so dreamy so I feel like I’m in a dream for a while.
One day, My mom saw her paintings and said that they are creepy and bizzare. Hmm….. Well, I could understand her point of view a little. She doesn’t like this kind of paintings. But, I still think they are definitely beautiful even though they are sometimes very gloomy. I like the atmosphere. It makes me feel like I’m not a only one.
In her paintings, there are some symbols (or not). lots of birds, cages, masks, eggs, circus, cats, dolls…

- And she studied Western art history and oil painting in The Kyoto Saga University of Arts.
- She is influenced by surrealism, symbolism, modern illustration, and a lot of things in Japanese subculture.
- Her oil paintings are dreamlike, melancholy and cryptic atmospheres with girls who play with imagination and try to change the world with their own ritual.

Lock your cage. It’s wild out there.
Go girl. Kick his ass. oh, wait. Where the eggs come from? He’s a rooster.

Are you gonna call 911? or.. Someone called you and made you do that?
Busy girl. I wish I had many hands like you.

Keep taking care of the blue bird.
Sorry. I don’t think your bird is there..
Are you gonna be fish now? Fish doesn’t need those wings? can I take them?
LOST CHILDREN -west town and east town-
You got lost, but you don’t cry at all.
Are you looking for your frieds? Look back. There she is.
Can you open Pandora’s box? only for me.
You’d better let him go. He has scary eyes. I don’t like it..
Doesn’t need to dance, if you don’t want to.
Don’t believe her.
