About shipping cost


My painting explores the origin of a painting using a form of landscape painting as a starting point. I choose only one action of it: reproducing the colours in landscape. I believe this simple action would reveal the (un-)necessity of a painting viewed by the people living in today’s society. In the series “REVIVE”, I use the record of photos of meals before and after the surgery. This is because I think it would symbolise what stomach surgery brings to myself, and it might be the best material to give the viewers time to read the meanings. I have processed the photos into mosaics, extracted colours from them, and faithfully painted dots with it. The information can be easily obtained by showing a photograph, but I think that the abstracted vague "paintings" can tell something more than "information" to the viewers by taking time to read and understand it. It is a Information that includes minor phenomena such as the materiality of canvas, touch of paints, and the physicality of the artist. For example, the passage of time before and after a meal, or what is "to eat" for a person whose stomach has been removed. わたしの絵画は、風景画という絵画のいち形態を端緒として、絵画の絵画たる所以をさぐるものである。「風景のなかにみた色を再現する」というひとつの行為のみを選択し、そのシンプルな行為の結果、現代のひとが観る絵画の(不)必要性が明らかになると考えている。 "REVIVE"シリーズでは、自身の手術前後の食事の記録を素材にした。胃の手術が自身にもたらすものを象徴するだろうし、また、観賞者に意味を読む“時間”を与えるのに最適な素材かもしれないと考えたからだ。今までどおり写真をモザイク加工し、色を抜き出し、忠実に絵の具でドットを描いていく。写真を見せれば簡単に得られる情報だが、抽象化された曖昧な「絵画」はそれを読解する時間をかけて観賞者に「情報」以上のなにかを伝えられるのではないか、と考える。絵の具や帆布の物質性と筆致、作家の身体性という些細な現象も含んだうえでの「情報」だ。それは、たとえば食前食後の時間経過、胃を切除したひとの「食べる」ということについて。 ////////// 2020 Acrylic on paper 34x15cm artwork 52x42x3cm framed
