場所 JR TOWER the first floor east concourse


Crystal

It is work letting place such as space and night sky appear in art box that displays this time.
Colorful molding thing of 21 big things and small things which assumed cardboard material rises from black space.
Each molding thing is abstract, but gives people the touch of "something" at the same time.
"Crystal" of work title refers to material with regular sequence of atom and molecules.
They are things indicating purified structure of the natural world at the same time to have a variety of expressions.
Molding thing each of work bringing remembrance to "bigger thing" to people now so that crystal lets you feel a part of principle of space and nature.
That is that each people finds expanse of own "sense" through the touch of "something" provided from work in "now here".
By display, eyes of coming and going people mix with existence of work now and think that we can invite resonance and resonance of consciousness.


■Comment of writer
What I am producing mainly now assumes cardboard material and is molding work which assembles after having colored with oil colors, and makes that three dimensional.
By matter (matter) made of putting oil colors many times, the surface has expression such as stone. In addition, let feel concrete relation with thing while work is abstract; have a shape. And as work is made into paper form, weight is light, and the inside is hollow.

"Weight" that color gives and "lightness" of material itself give optical illusion-like sense to people. Form and color, appearance and gap with reality bring disagreement and fluctuation of delicate sense. Of sense by seeing such a work swinging is very important element in my production. It gives instability of perception impression and fresh surprise to take in such a change in process producing work. By being stimulated by minute change, and taking, in work existence, new discovery and image occur. We determine the touch, and words cannot do it clearly. However, by passing through such a process, color and material are related to form closely, and work thinks that it is to thing which more strongly detonates people by contact.

Through seeing work, have the touch of "something" which cannot become language easily. That again with sense except sight and rouse memory own sense in consciousness of people and various things is to let connection feel.
Becoming mediation to bring expanse of "sense" in look of people that work comes and goes in front of it.
That becomes big motive to support my production activity.
