KUMIKO SUZUKI is an artist
based in Tokyo

A canvas is like space!
Living is the act of expressing.
Expressing will turn into a power to live.

I lost my young son who was the love of my life due to illness. I was in despair not knowing whether I was dead or alive for nearly 10 years.  
It felt as if I were in a bottom of a swamp.   I wondered, “Why am I still alive?”
But finally, I found an answer to that question. “There are things I want to express. That’s why I am alive.”
It was January, 2018.   The start of my days of abstract painting.

To me painting is a joy.   Appreciating and enjoying my five senses to full and concentrating on my own inspiration.

When I am painting an expression on a canvas, it brings me back to my childhood days when I was satisfying my curiosity limitlessly with liberty, and I start feeling life springing up from the bottom of my gut. The genuinely pure fundamental of happiness itself.

I paint the transcription of my feelings of freedom without any obsession on a canvas.  As I went through a time of despair, I can now believe that people live to enjoy happiness.  And expression is the power of living.

I want to paint something that would ignite people’s imagination to have the world on a flat canvas have vastness as spacious as space.

I would like to paint the light of primordial life that exsists inside the various beautiful things I find. And with the art I create with 100% happiness, it would be fun if that happiness spreads across those who see it.

── 生きるとは表現すること。

まるで沼の底にいるような気分でした。 私はなんでまだ生きているんだろう?そう思ってました。
