Midori Kudo
Currently enrolled at Lumbini Museum (Iwate Prefecture)

At times she is floating about, dreamily smiling and talking to someone nearby. At other times she is alone, immersed deeply in her own inner world. Kudo's gaze drifts, chasing something that only she can see in her mind. Is it to bring to mind images of happiness that fill the heart, or is it to block out images of pain and sadness?

Kudo's work has an endless quality, as if born from meditation. Is she conscious of creating something? When she draws, sews, or does something that is hard to understand, there is a mysterious air that makes you wonder.
