Notes from Atelier

New works in a time of virus  2020/07/12

Four paintings for ““The 21st France-Japan Multinational Contemporary Art Exhibition” are released on this Home Page and will be exhibited in the National Art Center from August 8th.
The works have been made with some influence under the outbreak of Coronavirus at least to a certain extent. You might have a stoic impression on the two Hydrangea Wreaths. On the other hand, the rest of them seem to be bright and optimistic as if the normal life returned to us.
City in lockdown and stay-at-home must have been an inimaginable thing happened in our lives. Flower petals spreading to outside might be some desire for the normal life.
It turns out that awful time in my life was good training for a pandemic, for social upheaval, for economic and financial uncertainty. The experience taught me that I never really know what’s going to happen next.
Many in the art world say an online viewing room cannot replace the firsthand experience of encountering a painting in person. However, it is impossible to visit a work of art at this time. I believe that a digital substitute is better than not seeing the art at all.
I hope they will be seen by many people in the museum as well as online gallery.
May God bless and keep you always!
