was born in Toyama Prefecture in 1977 and currently lives
and works in Tokyo. She has mainly been focusing on drawings
that are like scenes from a daydream but recently started
working more on paintings energetically in which the illusionary
and dreamy atmosphere is even more pronounced.
and narratives are important elements for my work, however,
I don't think I'm attempting to depict only the world of
fantasia. I feel that there is no hope in the world separated
from our everyday life. Reality and dream is always connected
and either of them can't be existed without one another.
I like things created from the mixture of both worlds and
would also like to be in both of them." - Shoko Morita
work looks like it is created from dream and fantasy at
the first glance, however, it is depicted from the edge
of everyday life as well. It is a preface of her creation
that she goes back and forth between dream and reality
so that there is nostalgia in fantasia and braveness existed
in her work.
