物心付く頃から絵を描くのが大好きでした。社会人になってから絵とは無縁の生活でしたが、2013年趣味で始めたチョークアートをきっかけにアートの世界に舞い戻ってきました。2016年から憧れの油絵を独学でスタートし、現在に至ります。

作品モチーフとしては、一見見過ごしてしまうような私達の身近にある自然や物に惹かれます。その瞬間に宿る永遠の美しさを油絵独特の色彩や質感で光と影を表現し、私の作品を見た人の心が温まるような何かを感じて頂けたら幸いです。

Sachi Yoshimoto is a Tokyo based self-taught artist who works mainly in oil medium. She loves the warmth that the medium gives to her work.

Artistically inclined from a young age, Sachi has worked diligently to bring her art to life. In 2013, after years of amateur work, Sachi decided to pursue her art wholeheartedly.

Sachi’s style of work is “true-to-life”, focusing on the breath she finds in organic and inorganic objects. Her vision is to bring life into the objects she’s attracted to in everyday life.

Apart from regular art commissions, Sachi often donates certain pieces and commission profits to animal charities she loves.

Like her art, Sachi continues to evolve and improve. Her ultimate aim is to have her artistic journey make everyone’s life a little brighter.

Curator Review
Fragrant Charms
A unified relationship between color, design and form,
can always be found in artist Sachi Yoshimoto’s work. Her dedicated exploration of light, body and texture, renounces the norm as she boldly dives into the medium itself. With strong painterly strokes and gestures, Sachi stresses the importance of ‘controlled spontaneity’ and at the same time exudes a sensitive and thoughtful approach to the ‘Still Life’. -E.E. Jacks

+ selected as Honorable Mention Artist
Curator Review: Drifting Off
Artist Sachi Yoshimoto benevolently offers up a secret glimpse into her method of creation in ‘Drifting Off’. Her loose yet purposefully executed brush strokes wondrously explore cause and effect. This transformational painting is open-handed in its honesty and imparts a connective equanimity and tranquility to the mind. Yoshimoto’s emotional sentience absolutely permeates her work.

Curator Review: Together
In a delicate and subtle arrangement, the forms of two almost luminescent dragon fruits emerge from the canvas. Yoshimoto’s luscious colors and soft edges, creates an almost dream-like still life. Her ability to capture and portray that sense of diffused light in an intimate work is unique to her expression and creates a captivating and unbroken connection between the viewer and the piece. - E.E.

Curator Review: Going Home
This familiar scene by artist Sachi Yoshimoto, tenderly captures a quiet moment shared between individuals. This painted experience offers up a fresh perspective on the various facets of connection and return. The distant horizon line has an atmosphere of stillness and clarity, and Sachi’s superbly executed values in soft pastel tones, absolutely warms the heart. - E.E. Jacks
