The Artist's Work may be Unsettling

Makoto Aida - Harakiri School Girls, 2006

The artist's work may also seem juvenile and misogynist. Isn't this what you expected from Japan?

From SF Weekly:
"...a glimpse of something unsettling, reminding us that all is not well below the shiny happy surface...Aida's subject is Japan's damaged national psyche."
