Maki Kuchida Paintings

Japanese, b. 1979
Maki Kuchida was born in Shizuoka, Japan in 1979. Passionate in painting she devoted her time to study at the Tokyo Zoukei University majoring in Oil Painting and graduated with her first fine arts degree. That did not end her pursuit for perfection in her art career, she went to Beijing to further her studies and in 2007 she obtained her MFA degree from the Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) in Beijing with major in Chinese painting. She likes to use the traditional delicate Chinese brush technique, which is also prevalent in Japan, to paint her works on silk or Japanese rice paper. Maki is inspired to paint landscapes and figures, she combines the Chinese and Japanese style painting on silk and rice paper with using mixed media materials like mineral pigments, color inks, and gold leaves. In one of her debut series “Premonition Dream,” she painted herself as that protagonist little girl wandering inside her dream and facing various dreamy landscapes and adventures. When she paints she puts focuses on the greatest details to perfect her works: almost hyperreal protagonists in a dreamlike and surreal fantasy world. Her works arouse and awake the inner world of viewers and remind them of their childhood, long-forgotten dreams and the imaginary fantasy land inside.

"The Mystic Drawers" contemporary Japanese painting mineral pigments silk
By Maki Kuchida
Located in Kowloon, Hong Kong
The Mystic Drawers is a 2020 work from Maki Kuchida. Levering on the Dalinian symbolism of drawers, the drawers could mean memories and unconsciousness, a legacy of reading Freud’s concept. They express the mystery of hidden secrets. Most children explore every drawer, cabinet and closet of their home. For Maki, surreal elements appearing in her paintings are very recurrent. The girl wanting to open the drawer is her desire to explore the unknown and the courage to take the first step regardless of uncertainty. This work is about exploration, possibility and courage. Maki's paintings may seem deceptively simple at first but indeed the colors and texture are achieved through a labor-intensive and time-consuming process as painting on silk for one color requires at least 8 layers of pigments.

"Riverside" Japanese landscape painting mineral pigments on silk nature skyblue
By Maki Kuchida
Located in Kowloon, Hong Kong
Riverside is a 2020 work of Maki Kuchida. Maki combines the Japanese landscape painting technique with the Chinese one thus her landscape work is unique in its own way. At first glance Riverside is the depiction of natural scenery of the mountain, trees, flowers, river and reflection of water. Maki paints with a wide view—with all the landscape elements arranged into a coherent composition. The clear blue sky is prominently included in the view that forms the key composition of the painting. As the saying the sky isn't always blue, so this landscape with a lovely blue sky symbolizes the ideal state of life. Maki’s Riverside subtly contains a spiritual element – the serenity of life, as reflected from the quiet and peaceful mood she created with colors and the composition. She is influenced by the traditional Chinese landscape painting style where the recognition of a literati spiritual element in landscape art is present. Riverside is not just a quiet and calm landscape painting as it appears, the motif is simple and yet laden with associations, the deep meaning is to inspire us to pursue the ultimate goals in life – happiness and peace of mind. The painted size of the work is approx. 25 x 58cm, while the framed size is approx. 45 x 78cm. It is framed with archival grade mount. There will be a certificate of authenticity issued with your acquisition.
