Mariko Kobayashi

Mariko Kobayashi (1987 Born in Osaka, Based in Saitama) depicts different connections that exist in the world by utilizing textile techniques such as weaving, dyeing, knitting, and stitching. Her artistic concept is based on the awareness of being conscious in the present moment, as we continue our life as mortal beings. Kobayashi’s work traces the long journey of how the flesh, the physical body that separates humans and animals, returns to the earth and continues a new life after reincarnation. Her exploration attempts to unravel essential form of life, which is rendered in chaos created by overlaying colors and shapes of different materials.
