Notes from Atelier

New Works are coming out soon


The season of fresh green has come. In Japan, the country has slowly begun its much anticipated vaccination program with dissatisfaction over the nation’s slow vaccine rollout. May vaccinations be expected to speed. After a long period of social distancing, and with many of us still working from home. I feel it is unavoidable to feel anxious about socializing.

About 10 works I have been making since the end of last year are expected to be at the on-line gallery soon. Four works out of 10 will be exhibited in the 22nd France-Japan Multinational Contemporary Art Exhibition (The National Art Center in Tokyo, 8/5~8/15, Solo Department). In addition, I am planning to make the video on all the works including the above 4 works.

The theme for the new works is “Relaxing with Greens”. Not only flowers but also ornamental foliage plant and women have been newly added to the works. My intention for each work is to create relaxing atmosphere with flowers, plants and women which are in exquisite sense of distance.
