This painting is one of the “Particles of Light” series that represented at my solo exhibition at McClain Gallery in Huston last fall. 
I depicted the white light-emitting particles on the gold background in a bidirectional way that can be seen as aggregate or discrete.
By making the background texture smooth at the bottom of the screen, the work gives the impression of a calm water surface. 
It is the area that separates this world and the other world. Also, the particles of white light remind us of the souls of the primal life and place where they return or are born.

“I’m waiting for you forever…”

Snow White” was originally featured in the Grimm fairy tale collection in German folks and is also widely known worldwide as a Disney movie. 

In this work, I described a scene that a prince appears to Snow White lying in the glass coffin by the seven dwarfs because they thought she is dead due to biting the poisoned apple made by the witch.

In this work, I depicted neither the seven dwarfs nor the prince around the coffin in response to the reaction of people’s indifference and its continuous situation to behavior and scandal of politicians in Japan.

White Snow who prepared a lot of poisoned apples by herself and ate them is lying on the coffin and waiting alone for help that will never come.

沈黙

 

散歩中、近所の老女と会った。楽しい世間話の途中で突然「こんなお婆ちゃんのお話を聞いたってしょうがないわね」と言って、彼女はにこやかに去った。
私は彼女を黙らせたものについて考える。

九州の林業が盛んな田舎町で家業である製材所を引き継ぎ15年程がたった。

毎日朝から夕方まで鋸屑まみれになりながら、小さな左脳をフル回転させて必死にやってきたつもりだ。平常時でも経営は厳しかったが、ここに来てこの騒動だ。正直、心は折れている。元々タフな精神力は持ち合わせていない。

独身の時はすごくお酒を飲んでいたし、家庭を持ってからはマインドフルネス的方法で、乗り越えるというよりは、痛みを散らす感じで何とかごまかしながら生きてきたが、今年に入ってから原因不明の全身痛に悩まされステロイドを常用するはめになった。そもそも絵を最初に描き始めた20歳の時もそうだったかもしれない。

その後に自覚した人一倍大きな承認欲求のせいで忘れていたが、絵を描く事は自分にとって腹式呼吸では得られない、感覚だけに集中できる唯一の方法だと改めて気付く事が出来た。

今は鏡に写った初老の顔を描く事で何とか気持ちを保っている。

The Smiling Skin

I started to create this painting with my thought that I wanted to depict the best smile. 
Every person has anxiety and a negative side on the back of their facial expression. It is impossible to live by eliminating all the negative sides. However, I believe that we could live happily in any era if we could share the warmth that we get by relating with others regardless of race, age, or gender even though we keep the negative side inside of our hidden part.
The reason why I purposely depicted the neon-colored blood vessel with transparent is that I want to show the uncomfortable and the freshness that the inside of the skin contains. The skins and the blood vessels represent the negative reality we have and the anxiety that is like the blood spill out when I cut the skin with a knife. I tried to make it pop with neon colors because it will be too grotesquery with real expression. They are the symbol of an image for anxiety or negatives feelings.
