Family provides a deeper meaning to clothing. The viewer is left wondering what kind of person wore each of the items presented and why Okada chose to add a line across these subjects. Could the line be the thing that ties people together? Does it reveal anything about the person who owned the article of clothing?
Born in Osaka, Japan / Works in NY
Noriko Okada’s works are like siblings who look nothing alike. They’re like third cousins; like twins separated at birth; like people who you could have sworn were only children: each work is singular, but is related by a thread that runs deep yet just out of sight. Her amalgamous artworks of paint, fabric, prints, and ceramic don’t shout their message out loud, but invite viewers in for a chat.
