(b. 1945, Japan)
Naomi Kobayashi uses material like Japanese paper, cotton and paper thread to create installations that speaks of cycles of life, death and regeneration. With training in areas of textile printing and weaving, she applies them to her works by weaving and at times with shredded paintings and texts. The interpretation of stillness highlights her concern with the ongoing cycles of life, and other works are representational of the link between cosmos and everyday life.
Naomi continues to create works with depth and substance to further illustrate the irony of life such as the positive and negative, and the unspoken.
