Artist’s statement

No.A : I was inspired by an ancient Chinese story.

In the story when a dying warrior escaped to the
forest at night, a beautiful woman appeared there
and treated him well, and the next morning when
the warrior woke up, nobody was there.
I felt that there were fairies of white plum, red plum
and pale pink plum, and I would like to paint the
spirit of plums in the deep forest. So I took a brush
and painted the work.

 

 

 

 

 

Artist’s statement

No.B : I was inspired when I walked on a side street
where no one passes one step away from the road
on the hill behind my house where I walk with my
dog usually. I felt that something seemed to drift
and it seemed to seek something in the fresh green
forest. And it seemed that I was invited somewhere
else. I imagined such atmosphere and expressed it
with a butterfly “Parantica sita” that flies across
the sea in the work.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Artist’s statement

No.C : I was inspired when I looked up a big magnolia
tree in the spring sun after the winter ends.
I felt that the flowers of white magnolia would
become white birds and leave the trees to travel in
the sky and not to bloom and fall. So, I would like
to paint such white magnolia.
