Jordan Gutierrez - Tomoko Takamashi
Garbage and rubbish. This woman makes installation art pieces out of. At first you might think, "Okay, trash on a wall," maybe to the uneducated artist's mind such as mine. But irony is, well it is, but instead of hung on a wall, its suspended. Tons of objects that invade eachothers space. Tomoko got a thing for rubbish, but she uses it in an intriguing way by using aerial and ground spacing. Cluttered/overpacked desk gives me an overwhelming sense that mess really wont ever go away. Maybe 'cause we're so busy all the time. Now I don't know if that was the concept miss Tomoko was trying to communicate, but this is how her work speaks to me.
