Miho Negishi graduated from Tama Art University in 2014, and then, have worked as an artist.
Having contracted with our gallery, she is one of an up-and-coming artist.
She treats drawing her body as a means of understanding herself and others.
Linking between the focused theme and external event, her painting approaches contemporary REALITY.
MASAKO is a self‐educated artist.
The black of paint and acrylic layered over a painting – it seems to be human’s hidden emotions.
She has been REBORN with many experiences after suspension of drawing.
“AAMOF” means “As A Matter Of Fact”.
We are very appreciate it if you would enjoy the show and would take in artists’ hidden thought and what they want to tell.
MASATAKA CONTEMPORARY ‒ DIRECTOR Masahiro Takahashi
We can’t read mind from an impersonal face.
We don’t know who is shallow ”I LOVE YOU” for.
Why are the portraits superficial and unlively?
The reason may be because the image is redrawn based on unnatural beautiful face by Pricla (Japanese style photo booth).
This processed portrait reflects fact that face is odd part and humans’ desire for faces, furthermore, that show coming generations’ face.

Completion must be with an end.
Life goes on, but if so, it must be incompletion all that while.
Impressive and exaggerated memories, fading memories, all of them are obscure.
I want to capture something going by painting everyone’s turning points.
