Satoco Yamamoto

I believe my artworks connect people with each other through shared feelings regardless of where they come from. In my work, I depict emotions, tell stories and express common memories that everyone has. Even when using a traditional Japanese style, such as Japanese woodblock, viewers recognize styles of various cultures mixed in my artworks. I love diversity and cross-culture, and always try to express that.

My works are done by papermaking and printmaking (e.g. woodblock, mono print, etching, and silkscreen), watercolor painting, acrylic painting, gouache or mixed techniques. In Japan, I used watercolors and acrylics to paint Japanese scenery of mountains, woods, trees, buildings, the sea, rivers, a train, a car, and so on, with my original mascot characters. It was once I moved to New York in 2013 that I started learning printmaking techniques by attending classes at the School of Visual Arts in New York. I was able to learn quickly supplemented with experience working at Dieu Donne, a paper-making company.

There are three facets of my artwork. The first is "mixed techniques": I am able to choose one or use multiple mediums and techniques combined in one artwork to express something more profoundly and widely understood. Secondly, I draw or paint a picture by using both hands and all fingers; I am right handed in daily life but ambidextrous while drawing. For example, I often use my pinky finger or ring finger like a pen or brush. Thirdly, my printmaking is based on the three-dimensional theory from my studies in design and architecture at the Japan Women's University. The knowledge I obtained from designing 3D models helps me to make theoretically correct designs, even if I am working on an abstract design for printmaking. I blend realism and abstraction.

I hope every viewer of my artwork feels like "Sato's art describes my own experiences and feelings," and that the more people who see my work, the more connections among them are made.
