MY EAST END: PAST AND PRESENT
Noriko's works reflect the landscape of East London, where she has lived and worked for many years. She is drawn to the distinctive characteristics of the area - its sights, sounds and smells - and the changes to the landscape.
Her practice has been heavily influenced by Western art as well as her Japanese origins, and the concept of being ‘Monono Aware’ – having an empathy towards the transience of things. She paints urban landscapes that she finds interesting for reasons ranging from the colour or atmosphere to the composition. She is struck by the transformative nature of light and the fleeting visual sensations that ensue, and is often attracted to evening views of the city – which can be full of hope, vibrancy, excitement, romance, or even isolation. She also likes recording the history of cityscapes that are constantly evolving.
Noriko Michigami is a painter based in Tower Hamlets
