看來既具無國籍風又有種說不出的奇妙,工藤萌子的畫中,登場人物們都有著同樣的臉,看起來又好似覆蓋著毫無表情、乍看如同無機質的假面。因為臉上被抹去了表面的個別性,反而令她所描繪的,內在的躍動被凸顯出來。除此之外,像是以坐檯小姐(陪酒女郎)為主題的作品裡所見到的:工藤以女性特有的觀點,揀出現代社會的滑稽。

By omitting any distinguishable cultural style and facial expressions, the characters in Moeko Kudo's compositions are deliberately portrayed to imitate the identical appearances of fake plastic mannequins. Since the face of each individual is either masked or effaced, the prominence of each character’s inner state is emphasized and contrasted against her physical profiles. Furthermore, female escorts are often depicted as the main subjects of Kudo’s works, where the compositions are presented as her critique on the absurdity of modern society from a feminist perspective. However the critique itself is not only voided of any sarcasm and irony, rather the characters appear to be embraced by an atmosphere of selfless and universal love, as if under the presence of motherly affection. The warm affection that silently observes, willingly protects, and unconditionally accepts all vicissitudes of life; is this not the love from the maternal energy of Kudo?
