Kazuna Taguchi

Kazuna Taguchi has attracted international attention for her ability to blur the border between photography and painting. Her work involves creating a monochrome acrylic painting that is then photographed to produce a finished image in what has been described as 'an alchemy-like manner that manipulates painting and photography' (Kyoji Maeda, February 17, 2006, evening edition, Yomiuri Shimbun). The result ensures a peculiar other-worldliness that is central to the attraction of Taguchi's work.
