Rena Kudoh

Based on her personal chaos such as anonymous memories mixed together while she moves around different areas, her child self that she cannot discard, and dreams that seem abrupt, she expresses them in painting, pottery, drawing and so on to create a world that one feels like they have seen it but have not actually seen it. At present, she does not have a base staying at different places mainly in Asia and makes her work while she travels.
