The abstract paintings and monotypes shown as Quiet People came from Ryoko’s art show at the Academy of Art fine art gallery in San Francisco in March of 2006. Using her experimental layering techniques with “Woman at White Table” and “Woman and Man at Cafe”, Ryoko provides another much less explored option by creating perspective outside the parameters of graphic theory. And with “Girl by Window” and “Woman by White Chair” Ryoko has upgraded conventional thought and shown how alternate composition models can invite viewers to wonder, what is beyond art on canvas. But perhaps the most powerful of Ryoko’s 2006 works are two striking pieces called “Waiting” and “Seated Nude”. These are bold abstract figures, and the look and feel of how they are portrayed by the artist first invites curiosity followed by public association. They have a soul and emotion that jumps out and grabs whomever takes a moment to stop and look. Charles Cunningham
