Masako’s original art works


  Masako Takamasu is an artist who finds the possibility of creating paintings in Japanese graceful beauty and abstract paintings.  

  Born in Hirado, Japan which is one of the islands located on the west side of Kyushu. The natural scenery around  her was always magnificent and limitless, to which these was the overwhelming presence to stimulate her five senses as the core of her production of paintings. Masako came to produce large size paintings willingly when she turned 15 years old and 2 years later she was endowed with an opportunity to measure communication through colors in the United States.  These experiences greatly influenced her process of producing new paintings. It goes without saying that it did not take a long time to come under an overwhelming influence of abstract paintings in San Francisco, California. During that period, she'd created abstract paintings larger than three feet minimum and expanded to fifteen feet wide.

She felt need of reconfirming Japanese beauty as her own identity through her paintings,  she came to find possibility of self-expression between the depth of graceful beauty by Japanese flower culture and objectivity of plasticity in abstract paintings.  She is overwhelmed by the vitality that flowers have and she is touched by the beauty which influences lives. They gently get close to her feelings somehow therefore they are admired.  Thus, because the overwhelming presence of her underlying nature she is stimulated anew, and come to plunge her magnificent imagination into the canvases again. Her passion of painting now continues with not only flowers but power of nature in New York City.
