Sie Kasahara

abstract painter / sculptor / textile designer

1973 born in Japan, based in Tokyo

2009 12th Liquitex Biennale

         Encouraging Prize and Judge Prize (Takayuki Terakado Prize)

Her works are represented by art gallery closet and Kurum'art Contemporary in Tokyo, and the works also have been exhibited internationally in LA, Houston, USA, Hamburg, Germany and in Bolzano, Italy. She also has been invited some Artist Residencies in Austria, Romania, and Chile and Art Festival in India.

Some works have been adopted on products such as i-Phone cases, luncheon mats and notebooks, and as an article of magazines, book cover design and it was also used for the poster and brochures of Liquitex acrylic paints.

What she expresses in her art is the "collective unconscious", which is actually a psychological term. She expresses feelings and sensations of the hidden sub consciousness that humans all naturally share, and this is what is called "the collective unconscious".


Even in today's world which is flooded with symbols and icons, but there are still many things which cannot be defined by words or symbols. And she feels as though there are many people who want to express those feelings and thoughts which are inexpressible.


She expresses feelings and sensations which cannot be described with language in her work.

She captures the raw and unprocessed emotions of the sub consciousness before they can become comprehensible. She expresses them in obscure shapes and colors, because they have no names. Her hands create the work without any conscious image. The drawing is automatic; drawing without thinking about anything. Therefore she always tries to empty her mind.

Her art will be able to stimulate the thoughts of viewers and let them recall something unexpectedly.

​She gives you some catharsis, when you see her work. It is intimately extroverted so you can talk with them easily.

Perhaps if it looks not so strong, actually but it is strong as you know. The poetic title is helps that you connect to sub consciousness.

She creates something that is totally incomprehensible but stirs your imagination.

You don’t need to know everything, but you can feel everything.
