(by Ayano Sudo, 2011)
When I am looking through a viewfinder, I look at not only optical things but also sparkling something.
I have an inner lens filter in my heart which I call “sparkled filter”.
When I found charming someone who has androgynous image, I watched him or her with” sparkled filter”. In the moment, I feel like I’m in sweet love.
I would like to sublimate that feeling into my work.
I use a lot of KIRAKIRA (sparkling) things for surface of cotton paper.
That is Photoshop brushes, glitters, ramps, Swarovski line stones.
KIRAKIRA comes from 70’s manga style for girls in Japan.
Even now, these images are influencing on many things.
Especially PURIKURA (instant photo sticker) and fashion magazine for teenager girls.
When you saw my portrait of a pretty girl, actually she is a boy.
I treat androgynous images of boys and girls, because they are so charming for me.
after taking them a photograph, the boy would be girl and the girl would be a boy, boy would be a boy….If you are confused, you already fall in my love….maybe.
