Rihomi Sato’s central concern is humans and their thoughts as biological, physical creatures: instincts and desires, impulses, complexities, and identities. She seeks truths through painting, drawing, and mixed media.
She considers how people interact and deal with their environment, whether natural or artificial and contrived, using product magazines, newspapers, pictures, clothes, and plastic. She synthesizes the mundane with ephemeral thought, exploring contrasting perspectives and meanings through her art.
Her work expresses the centrality of emotion to human existence and exposes humanity’s wild side. She experiments, taking action, eating, or creating something driven by her desire and momentary impulses. Rihomi’s work is driven by spontaneity. It embraces the unexpected as an opportunity to comprehend both humanity’s and her own driving interests.
