Kumiko Tamura's paintings are done on square canvasses with depths of 7-10 cm, with a picture composition wherein scenes of city or nature are split in two parts by the horizon.
Because the landscape is drawn to the side of the canvas, it appears three-dimensionally.
Kumiko Tamura's "Painting" that exists as a solid body even while being planar gives an atmosphere to the painting that has a sense of giving depth to the art on folding screens done in the past.
In addition, at the same time as creating three-dimensional paintings with visually unbroken views, her paintings have a horizon that spreads beyond the canvas.
Kumiko Tamura's works will fit nicely into any interior, so they continue to be as popular as ever.
As one of the artists that can secure a firm position in the art market, it is not hard to imagine that her valuation will continue to become higher.
