Kimiko Yoshida's work has been featured here before, but her new 'Painting. Self-Portrait' series strikes another unique and intense power that captivates the viewer.
The 'Painting. Self-Portrait' series is in fact a collection of photographs of the artist, in which she attempts to spotlight an object, a garment or an accessory whilst attempting to obscure her own image into the background. In this particular series, such brilliant colors emerge that draw attention to the props in the picture, though one can't help but notice the somber and subdued beauty of Yoshida amidst the composition of her own creation.
