Midori Kudo

Midori Kudo

At times, I am smiling and talking to someone around me as if I am dreaming. At other times, she is alone, deep in her own inner world. Kudo's gaze wanders after something that is reflected only in her mind. Is it a happy image that fills her mind? Or is it to avoid reflecting pain and sorrow in her mind? Or is it to keep pain and sorrow out of her mind?

There is an endlessness to Kudo's work that seems to come from meditation. I wonder if she is aware that she is creating something right now. When she is drawing, sewing, or doing something else that is not clear to me. There is a mysterious air in her work that makes you suddenly feel such questions.
