Misato Suzuk

Misato Suzuk is a Japanese artist who currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California. Both her paintings and illustrations demonstrate delicate, organic lines combined with a neutral color palette.  Although her preferred mediums are two-dimensional, her line work successfully creates shapely, bulbous forms. Subtle accents of ink splotches grace her surfaces, and add to the the soft and muted mood of her abstractions. Suzuk’s tranquil work is fluid and beautiful, making it a pleasure to view.

    I find these palettes calming. The simplicity, yet discrete embellishment, of the works definitely bolsters that sense of placidity. Those rectangular pieces begin to remind me of Rothko, but then tear in another direction entirely with the addition of texture, pattern, and circular forms. Neat. Perhaps what is most alluring about these creations are their patient details juxtaposed against that expansive emptiness. Serene; homey.

  2. Thanks for posting this artist’s work. It comes at just the right moment for me (selfish)… since repetition and pattern are something I am preparing to tackle more directly in my own work.

    It’s always refreshing to witness the breadth of expression that is possible to acheive with just a few simple elements: here, just some coffee-esque earth tones, pencil or pen, and simple shapes.
