In her painterly practice, Ai Makita combines digital and analog methods to express her view of the human world. She creates layers of painted and digital images that are piled on top of each other. Whether viewed on a PC screen or in a painting, they are identical.Refering to her images as “non human” or “non organic” (eg metal objects), whether the objects exist or not in the real world is irrelevant to the artist.
