Looking at the line

The series “Looking at the line” revolves around a certain place which the artist has repeatedly visited and sketched over the years during various seasons and times of day. Mikame discovers lines from within the landscape while confirming various elements such as people and buildings, to cars passing by, lights that turn on after sunset, natural light that changes with the weather, and the overall atmosphere including the temperature and humidity of that place. She interprets the landscape that spreads out before her eyes according to her relationship with these lines, and ultimately incorporates them into her paintings. Contrary to their seemingly abstract nature, this series of work is in fact replete with the artist’s meticulous contemplation and consideration for her theme and subject.
