Asyl in German means “holy ground” or “area of freedom.” Over the past ten years as Kodama has faced her series of paintings, Deep Rhyme which presents the encounter of feelings in nature before the recognition that one has sensed something. When producing work, she has continued to use a technique where she wraps her subject in thin layers on the surface of the canvas. Now she seeks a new direction by peeling off those layers to uncover the life form that is inside. In this exhibition, we will interweave this work that represents her new direction, Asyl and her recent work, Deep Rhyme to show Kodama as an artist in the midst of the transition phase.

* The monograph, Deep Rhyme, has been published to accompany this exhibition.
