Noriko SAITO - サイトウノリコ

b. 1973

The subject matter of each of Noriko Saito’s drypoint prints is somehow loaded with humor. The fact that she is the mother of two small children seems reflected in their composition showing strange and interesting animals, birds who stare you straight in the eye, all sorts of "fun" shapes, and are printed with bold colors that make sure that you cannot take your eyes off them for a minute. Printed in small editions also makes sure that you don’t take too long to decide if you want one or not, or they may all be sold out. Since Noriko is rather new to this print world her prices are not yet too high that you cannot have two, or even three. They will all leave you smiling.
サイトウノリコ 1973年横須賀生まれ。多摩美卒。ユーモア溢れるドライポイント制作は二人の子供を育てる母親の目を通した日常の描写かもしれない。技量も確立したこの作家は各エディション枚数も少なく、鑑賞者を引き込み楽しませる作風でコレクターを魅了する。近年の版画コンクールでのたび重なる受賞や公的美術館への納入実績が作品の評価の高さに連動している。
