Ruri Matsumoto

Ruri Matsumoto was born in Tokyo in 1981.

She studied at the Tokyo University of the Arts and the Düsseldorf Art Academy under Markus Lüpertz and Herbert Brandl and is a master's student of the renowned artist Katharina Grosse.

Most recently, Matsumoto received the sponsorship award of the Swiss Fondazione Silene Giannini, based in Lugano.

The artist always works according to a strict concept of reduction and an apparent deconstruction. She paints the backgrounds of her pictures with horizontal or vertical strips of paint and then applies adhesive tape to them, which is then peeled off again - leaving traces, noses, fractures, and fragments.

Works by the painter are in the collection of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and the Marta Herford. Ruri Matsumoto lives and works in Düsseldorf.
