Haruka Saino

I create two-dimensional works, mostly in oil, using transparent colors. I create abstract paintings by discovering beautiful phenomena that arise accidentally outside the scope of my consciousness and intention. In recent years, I have been working on a series of strokes utilizing brushstrokes like unconscious note-taking.
