Mariko Teratoko – captivating abstract déjà vu of her memory-scape

For Mariko Teratoko, painting has been and will be all her lifework. She fixed her gaze on her painting journey in childhood and successfully continuing to this day. She was born in Mie prefecture, Japan, and horned her craft at Nagoya Zokei Junior College by majoring in Western paintings. She says she “has met many fantastic artists and teachers, and their great influence has raised me as one.”

 

Teratoko’s sophisticated Abstract paintings are received well in the art society not only in Japan but worldwide. She has held solo exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art Saitama, Jiyuu Bijutsu, galleries in Tokyo, and Seoul Kepco Art Centre. In November 2022, she will be holding another solo exhibition at Artifact in New York. Also, she appears in many group exhibitions and participates in Asian art fairs.

 

As she explains the theme of her artworks “the colors of the memories,” her paintings bring back the favored moments of one’s lives to the audience. She expresses nature’s colors, such as water, mountains, sky, and plants, or cityscape with beautiful overlaps and layers of paints. It is a personal memory of hers, yet you will be captivated in this beautiful déjà vu of your memory-scape.

Isaac Ishimatsuhttps://www.tricera.net/
Born in Tokyo in 1988 and raised in the countryside, Isaac now stays in France. Although he excelled in his studies and work, he spent his time in Japan as an unconventional individual who puzzled his serious teachers and superiors. To realize his childhood dream of living abroad, Isaac moved to Canada in 2015. Currently, learning new languages, teaching languages, and working for TRiCERA keep him busy. Having worked at a pottery studio and studied music at a Canadian college, he has a wide range of interests, including photography and art. He writes about the connection between art and daily life from observations of the history and comparison of cultures.
