Artist Statement: "Inspired by a photograph which was sent by my father who retired five years ago and found himself a new path to be a mountain climber. The picture showed almost surreal looking landscape filled with vibrant colours along with a white path.

The white path in the photo seemed very optimistic and symbolic, therefore I emphasized the aspect in the elephant painting with a hope of a good future for all the creatures in the world.

The artwork is conducted by painting and collaging by cutting, tearing and layering pasted papers which are often cutouts of my etchings."

About Fumiko Toda

View Profile »

Fumiko Toda spent her formative years surrounded by nature in a small town in the Japanese countryside. Frequenting ponds thriving with insects and biodiversity, Toda experienced an intimacy with the natural world that is present in her paintings today. She lives and works in New York City, where the disconnection of the urban experience from the natural world is a major influence of her work, which uses colors, textures, and forms derived from her childhood.
