 This series of paintings I have complied focuses on her sexier side. Lots of teasing, playful eroticism in these works.

    Why so focused on young Yumiko, U ask? Well..

   1) I love the vibrant playful simplicity her self portraits reveal about the artist.
   2) She is a prolific artist working at almost Terminatoresque efficiency.

  I'm not sure if this is how she views her sexuality or if she's trying to interpret how people see her.  
  (Note how I intentionally used PPL bc I'm confident Yumiko gets ogled by just as many women as she does men)

   These paintings remind me of the ancient 'pillow book' illustrations. It's interesting to see the pervasive impact this ancient art has had on Japanese culture (sexy anime, cosplay, maid cafes, escort cards lying all over the street, etc).

   Her work always contains some traditional Japanese elements & there's a quirky twist.

   I think save Middle Eastern & Hindu cultures, the Japanese have the most difficult time balancing the traditions from the past w/ their high-tech, fast food, fast paced modern lives.
