Sachiko Kazama

By using abundant color expressions between black and white, Kazama engraves social and political satire and nonsensical human acts sometimes comically and sometimes delicately on her woodcut print with a delightful sense of humor. Through enormous research on history, past and present events intersect and create a fictional story in her work.
