DescriptionLeaning into abstraction as poetry, I seek to find beautiful ways to express my internalized restlessness and melancholy. Rhythm, temperature, picture plane, geometry, and colors all work together in creating drama and tension within each painting, and these formal concerns are also subject matters in and of themselves. Nature is a great teacher of abstraction and painting landscapes is my way of understanding the language.
About this Artist
Born and raised in Hong Kong to Japanese and Chinese parents, Misato migrated to the United States during late adolescence. Shortly after receiving her masters degree in painting from the New York Studio School, she relocated to St. Louis and currently teaches art through Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, as well as Webster University and St. Louis Community College. Misato’s works overlap personal narrative and cultural events, some of which allude to current social phenomena and political discourse in Asia. She is fluent in Cantonese, Japanese, and English, and has participated in various residencies and exhibitions in the United States and Japan. Recently, her painting “Sunday Tree” was awarded the Best of Show in the 37th Annual Exhibition at Art St. Louis. View Full Artist Bio
