Minako Abe's stylized landscapes seem to warp in the frame as you look at them. The images bend, they move and they even confuse viewers. One woman looking from a distance thought the images were digital and doctored.
They are, in fact, oil on canvas.
The pieces were shown by Base Gallery (Tokyo).
Abe is a graduade of Tokyo Zokei University's Painting Department. He has regularly exhibited in his home country and also in Vienna. The large tryptych sold at Expo Chicago.
