Kei Imazu Forest

Artificial Green by Natural Green is a work of art created with a brush with water and an oil palm tree. The technique of manipulation by the organic currents erases the plants on the canvas and is an attempt of the artist to draw attention to deforestation in Indonesia.

Kei Imazu who was born in Japan and now lives in Indonesia is known for her style of free brushstrokes. And Tokyo Anomaly Gallery recently held her solo exhibition with large-scale paintings.

Her project mixes painting with biotechnology and mechanical engineering and is all focused on deforestation that has become a critical issue in Indonesia. According to the data, found by the researchers, during the period of 2011-2016, the national palm oil industry numbered 23% of the national forest destruction. And this is threatening biodiversity and thousands of organisms. Nowadays, the rainforests which contribute to our ecosystem, are being massively destroyed and replaced by oil palm plantations. Kei Imazu’s installation attempts to show the phenomena related to global climate change.
