Having been highly promoted by the Japanese media, her artworks are now well known, appreciated and collected in Japan. The pictorial compositions surf between figuration and surrealism; she depicts women, often facing gigantic and unexpected natural disasters. The artworks address a message about the status of women in Japanese society.
Now living and working in France, the artist developed a more mature reflection and reveals an indomitable nature, sometimes soft, sometimes violent, but always prodigious. Her universe plunges us into the depths of sky and water through the fine bristles of her brushes.
From her reflections based on the place of a human being confronting with the world, Shiori Eda sketches scenes of miniature realities that she reconstructs. These dioramas simplify the narrative framework on simulated places andoffer it a vision on an intimate scale that concentratesemotions. She paints an illusory world that is more authentic than the real life.
