The world of OKI Ayano, which has emerged as a companion piece to the genre known as "beauty paintings," invites us into a gaze of deep eroticism.
The women who accept the men depicted in wildly colored paintings, as if they were upside-down cups of coffee, are at the edge of sensuality and throw their gazes this side of the screen in search of something deeper and more intense.
Her hidden intensity is unique in the Japanese portrait scene, which repeatedly depicts the surface of hard-skinned women.
Her paintings, which never cease to question and love sensuality, human existence, and the very existence of things, evoke a sense of tension that is unique to artistic expression. Her sensuality, which could be called a Japanese Egon Schiele, is not, however, the European obsessiveness of Schiele's paintings, but seems to suggest a Japanese optimistic desire for happiness.
