ITO Natsumi

Based in Tokyo, she creates and presents mainly oil paintings. The theme is "dynamic equilibrium". Things maintain their stability by repeating minute vibrations, and there is no object or state that is stationary. This is because things are always interfered with by some kind of force emanating from outside or inside, and these actions never cease.
