“Drop” is drawn from the artist's daily drawing practice from mid-July, 2017.
Shimojo shares a series of abstract scenery called “Today’s Love Letter to You“ on her pages. This piece represents a love letter for one whose heart was echoed in hers.
Watercolor on paper is the medium the artist chose to depict what resonates with her emotion the most. Without sketching or planning before, she right dives into her painting. This practice doesn’t allow the artist any anticipation. And it teaches her the acceptance and flexibility of life itself, which is not always easy.
She is the last descendant of her samurai lineage. In her youth, she practiced the Japanese traditional arts of tea ceremony, flower arrangement, and especially Noh and Kabuki theatrical dance performance for more than 20 years. Yuri also spent many years living in Hawaii since her childhood. She currently lives and works between New York and Kyoto. These experiences moving between cultures have influenced her work throughout her life and continue to bring new sources of inspiration today.
