Outside

1997

David Bowie OUTSIDE International art competition

Mix Media

I was saved many times in my boyhood suffering by David Bowie.
There must have been many such boys all over the world.
Maybe he has been with me through all my life experiences.
What has been lost with Bowie's death? Adventourous spirit? 
Passion to move towards the future?
But life goes on.
That is the problem.

Jodoji Temple Twilight

Onomichi for me is "Tokyo Story", the movie by Yasujiro Ozu.
Within the film, Jodoji appears as an important place.
The Jodoji I have painted is a self-portrait seen through Ozu's film.

3rd Saburo Miyamoto Memorial Drawing Prize 

Grand Prize (pencil, gesso, on canvas)

Collection of Miyamoto Saburo Museum

There is no form in how we feel.
There is no form but there exists a world in which we feel.
Whenever I reflect that feeling in my work, I always use the title COSMOS FACTORY.
I think I found the word COSMOS FACTORY from something to do with rock music, 
but I think it discribes these works perfectly.

COSMOS FACTORY

2016

29th National Painting Competition Exhibition IZUBI 

Excellence Award (Acryllic on canvas)

Here, again, I am using this title.

 

There is no form in how we feel.
There is no form but there exists a world in which we feel.
Whenever I reflect that feeling in my work, I always use the title COSMOS FACTORY.
I think I found the word COSMOS FACTORY from something to do with rock music, 
but I think it discribes these works perfectly.
