小林万里子 Mariko Kobayashi
Born in Osaka in 1987. Majored in textile design at Tama Art University, completed the same graduate school in 2012. By combining various materials using textile techniques such as weaving, dyeing, knitting, and embroidery, he expresses various connections that exist in the world. The time of "now" where we live as "humans", such as the long time in which the body returns to the soil as the dividing line between humans and animals, and the process of regenerating life as other living things after death. I create while listening to it. I try to draw the essential figure of life from the image of chaos that appears in multi-layered colors and shapes.
