Noriko Kinouchi is an visual artist based in Tokyo who specialized in digital expression. In 2012 she had started artistic career in New York.

An article of ARTisSpectrum vol.28, Nov 2012 by Agora gallery:
Japanese new media artist Noriko Kinouchi creates
sumptuous digital compositions which combine
disparate elements and mimic many traditional practices
in hybrid images richly layered with vivid details,
patterns and tones. “I believe that art has the power
to change both the artist and the audience,” she
explains, “and to build a connection between them.”
The link she herself develops springs from her ability
to tap into shared visual culture, from her ornate digital
takes on the organic forms of classical Japanese
prints, to watery, Monet-esque landscapes, and Pop
art-like treatment of photography. The resulting digital
prints act as new media tapestries of sorts, honing
a distinct and original aesthetic from many different
threads.
These technically sophisticated and visually gripping
images all feature figurative and abstract elements, with the central figures of certain works so thoroughly deconstructed
as to become practically unrecognizable. Yet Kinouchi also layers in additional fragments of images and patterns. Her
compositions seem at once scrubbed of information and awash in detail. Her choice of subjects likewise complicates
facile distinctions, turning natural imagery like birds, fish, insects and plants into elaborately rendered and tonally stylized
digital creatures, like the flora and fauna of a futuristic environment. This fusion of traditional imagery and cutting-edge
techniques produces unforgettable works that connect viewers to their past and present. Read Less
