By diverting objects of everyday life and fashion accessories, fragments belonging to the haute couture, or to the history of art, Kimiko’s “Paintings” series transform the works of  Tiepolo, Watteau, Fragonard, Boucher, Rubens, Rembrandt, Picasso, Matisse, Gauguin, and Delacroix. Kimiko Yoshida recreates hairstyles or archaic masks she finds in museums and stages behind them her own disappearance. To see more of her work click here.
