Yurina Okada creates new two-dimensional works that interweave painting and photographic techniques. Her work is based on the belief that “everything decays,” which makes the intentionally applied cracks in the picture plane relevant to the Japanese aesthetic of “beauty of imperfection. Okadaʼs work makes a statement about the problem of superficiality of two-dimensional works such as “Faktura” of the Russian avant-garde from a Japanese perspective.

biscuit gallery is an emerging gallery founded in January 2021 during the coronavirus pandemic.
We actively organize exhibitions, mainly featuring young artists, and besides the projects at the gallery, we have also had the opportunities to exhibit at not only domestic but also international art fairs.
The gallery has attracted a lot of attention because of its favorable location on Bunkamura street in Shibuya area, Tokyo, and its characteristic three floors of exhibition space in the gallery building.
