“Crouching”
2022.5.3.tue~5.15.sun 11:00~19:00


 

I illustrate people with color pencils.
I do not want to express people, but I just do my thoughts and feelings in the form of people.
A feeling of “blockage” that makes you feel like you are about to suffocate
and a “feeling of emptiness” that makes you feel like you are in there but somehow slipped out.
I feel that these two conflicting emotions have always been inside of me.
The “blockage” of a person pushed into the screen.
The “emptiness” that dwells in unpainted hair and clothes,
leaving the background color which is overlaid on the base.
Another “blockage” created by cutting out a “blockaded” person.
Since 2019, I have been producing works with the theme of this “blockage and emptiness” .
I feel that this feeling that I have been staring at personally
has been spread all over the world since 2020.A feeling of blockage and emptiness
Crouching in the middle.
