Girls in various sizes, large and small, appear in the works of Ryoko Kaneta.
These girls are personifications of natural objects, phenomena, intentions, and memories.
Kaneta expresses the local thinking and traditions of a land through the stories created by these personifications.
These girls, who fill the entire surface of the image, all exist in different times.
The wealth of this information entertains the viewers of her works.
These narrative works remind us of the thinking of an ancient in which all things were considered to have a mind.
These aspects of nature that have been turned into characters could be seen as a bridge that connects the story with we contemporary people.
