“I’m Not Expecting You To Fully Understand Me”: The Intimate Artworks Of Tomona Matsukawa

Tomona Matsukawa was born in 1987 in Aichi, Japan, and graduated Tama Art University 2011 having specialized in oil painting. Matsukawa’s photographic paintings usually depict intimate belongings of women, particularly those close to her age.
