Biography / Goto Atsuko

Japanese artist Goto Atsuko is a painter who is known for her images of figures that emerge from our dreams, her works have been described as melancholic fused with the natural environment be it static or moving. Goto Atsuko’s works are featured in the URBAN NATION 2018 exhibition, ‘UN-DERSTAND The Power of Art as a Social Architect’.

Goto Atsuko’s stems from the From flowers to butterflies to insects, birds, and fish, her gentle assortment of colours found in her images are created through the application of diluted pigments made from semi-precious lapis lazuli, ink, and gum arabic applied to cotton. The traditional Japanese religion Shinto harbours the belief that nature is bought to life through divine intervention and sprits, Atsuko conveys an image that visualises this feeling and contrasts this by a darker, more sinister proposal of lamentation and sadness. Goto Atsuko’s art radiates a contemplative resignation despite the abundance of detail within her arrangements. Peace and tranquillity describe the presence of the mysticism for this artist.
