Izumi Omori

Izumi Omori is an artist exploring her Japanese and Cornish influences. I found a few of her cards in a Cornish shop and was immediately impressed. After researching a bit more I found these three paintings, which are just a few of my favourites. The main thing I notice, apart from the obvious ability to combine colours, she knows how to create a different but always positive atmosphere. The middle example demonstrates this well, as it's quite eerie but the subtle hint of yellow makes it more serene and peaceful. Her paintings make me feel like I'm in a dream, they have that hint of surrealism.
