Ruri Clarkson
Ruri Clarkson is a visual artist whose narrative pieces playfully explore nuances of feminist issues. She depicts fantastic worlds, often referencing motifs from Chinese embroidery, East-European folk art and Ukiyo-e. She is based in Tokyo after picking up embroidery in Hong Kong. She has exhibited in Spiral, Shinjuku Isetan, H.P.France usagi pour toi, and contributed illustrations for major department stores, art centers and a lingerie brand. In 2013 she held a solo show entitled IMPOSING WORDS – contemporary family issues, at NIDI gallery. She exhibited works that took keywords from family life and women's identity and recast as decorative embroidered works containing puns and wordplay. She is a graduate of Keio University and a recipient of the Semi-Grand Prize of SICF14.

In his most recent paintings, Sato uses acrylic paint on top of the image he drew with pencil to render details of the image partially invisible. In his paintings, eyes which can read emotions and opinions are always masked, enhancing the mysterious impression.
The key concept of the artist is that the real exists in the invisible.

From my thinking concerning the raw material of ceramic and the creation process, this series of pieces uses ceramic material as a memory medium that match very well our human existence through its strong presence and brittleness. In this work, I borrowed the models, from women friends of the same generation as me. At the same time, they answered some questions about their private life. At first glance, these questions may look out of context but they in fact concern their private daily lives and also their unconsciousness. By sculpting these intimate clothes worn very nearly form their body, I reproduce and record their memories in ceramic. I’d like to touch people feeling concerning ‘’LIFE’’.
