Shiori Matsumoto

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…
