Yayoi Deki creates minimalistic works using the colours from national and minoritygroup flags. With their gently blurred lines and intermingling colours, these paintings seem to depict flags waving in the breeze. This mottled appearance is achieved through a finger-stamping technique, and a tiny face is embedded in each mark, evoking the population that is represented by each flag's colours.
