Duchamp is the root of Kubota's memory of art and the source of her inspiration.
His biological roots are in Japan, a small land, an island.
East and West, anti-art and japanese cherry blossoms, the flow of real water and the flow of electronic pictures - in her work Kubota fuses elements out of the Japanese and European-American culture to something completely new.
Childhood memories, her situation as a woman and an artist, and the attempt to combine ecology and art determine above everything else the forms of these creations, which can only be developed through a fine sense of sculpture.
Kubota's art bubbles over from intellectual and sensual reflection. For her the medium is like a diamond that refracts light. She does not need jewelry because her art is jewelry.
