2018

$6,800

About

'So Long' a mysterious and fascinating portrayal of a young women standing inside of a ring of red flowers, in front of a heavy velvet gold and red drape, that is falling on either side of the natural setting, and framing a dramatic outdoor or theatric scene. Colors are mainly red, black and white with golden warmth. Complex and provocative. Photorealist in design as well as surreal and bridging magic realism. The painting is 18 x 15 inches, unframed, wired and ready to hang. Condition excellent. Artist signed, titled, dated Verso. A highly collectible original oil painting by Japanese Chikako Okada whose unique work is exhibited and collected worldwide. Chikako Okada’s autobiographical oil paintings, bridge traditional realism with magical realism and surrealism. The artist uniquely addresses questions of the human condition through her meticulously detailed, and patterned paintings. They are mesmerizing, rich in symbolism, and reference feminine power, vulnerability, sadness, longing, and desire. The paintings often feature young women — adolescent girls and boys — mysteriously posed, leaving their circumstances to the viewer's interpretation. The artist is inspired by the paintings of European masters, Mexico's Frida Kahlo, and the American surrealists. Educated in Japan and the United States at San Francisco's Art Institute, Chikako Okada has exhibited internationally over a 30-year period.
