Rei Naito - Mirror Creation
The catalogue for an exhibition at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, ‘Mirror Creation’ showcases work by the artist Rei Naito. In engaging in a dialogue with the space, Naito combines natural elements with delicate motifs, and layers faint colours on canvas to evoke primordial scenes. Her expressions of the creation of life oscillate between human beings and nature, life and death, inside and outside, and also act in ways that copy, reflect, and alter these themes. In developing a sense of unity with the anima and the compassion that emerges from her mirrored images, a moment of creation is manifested. Naito was born in Hiroshima in 1961.
