Many of Sato’s paintings depict enclosures resembling closets, which spatially suggest depth and three-dimensionality, but are filled with shoes or garments painted in a flatly decorative manner. Within the spaces sharply delineated by horizontals and verticals, each detailed element stands out with an independent presence, clearly figurative yet reduced to color, line, and brushstroke. Deft compositions and configurations draw the viewer’s line of sight into the interior of the enclosure, weaving a dazzlingly vivid tapestry with a quality of dense, elaborate interiority.
