With her camera, Rinko Kawauchi captures those details of everyday life that are all too easily missed by the busy passer-by—water dripping from a faucet, a crack in a watermelon, a spoonful of tapioca. Seen through the well-attuned eyes of the artist, ordinary objects and occurrences become charged with beauty, poetry and emotion. Arranging her images in a way that reveals unexpected conflations of forms, moods or atmospheres, Rinko Kawauchi creates subtle, open-ended narratives that encourage us to engage with the infinite wonders of the world.
