Akiko Toriumi is a Japanese artist who has been living and working in France for many years… Kay Sato, with whom she lived for some time, revealed to her the magic of matter as a means of interpreting the world. This matter is a reality in itself and becomes the matrix of its pictorial expression. On the resistant canvas as well as Nepalese and spidery paper, the layers are superimposed, saturated, creating reliefs and depressions, they spread mysteriously in the depths where all references are lost. If forms appear, they are not named and the vision gets lost between fluidity and petrification. Akiko Toriumi paints to give painting the brutality and violence of an eruptive material, original and organic. In addition, her landscapes are born, but we can not say to which world they belong.
