DESCRIPTION

Oil, crayon, oil paste on canvas | 2023

For this collection of works, Shibuya explored ideas of nationality, race, ageism, sexism, and how people often view them as separate entities, when in reality, most people experience - directly and indirectly - as fluid and simultaneous existences. The artist wanted to bring these concepts to the forefront as a collection to show that as different as people may be, the human commonality often leads to shared experience. In her own words:

Vibrant, young,
old, decrepit,
these are all nuances,
labels that we are told,
but do not have a place to hold in its entirety because we are multifaceted human beings.
There is no one way to face a world where we are supposed to fit containers,
as if lined up at a grocery store, waiting to be feasted upon.
No, we are uniquely, individualistically, superbly, different β€” and beautiful.
Effervescent, illuminating, wondrous, creatures,
roaming the planet, trying to find our way, our voice, our place,
yet a wise man told me once when feeling lost, β€˜Home is where you are, wherever you are, wherever you want it to be.’
We are One World.

β€œI associate sounds with colors, or more specifically, certain sound waves as colors. It is a combination of the sound tone, mixed with a sensory connection to the vibration felt throughout the body which produces an association with a particular color.”
