No.MIJIMI227の オブザベーション ブリーフ

This time, I stepped away from myself, observed myself from a second perspective, hypothesized a scenario and narrative of observer and observed, and organized the paintings I have recently produced about pandas.

In fact, the paintings themselves have no special meaning for me; I paint out of instinctive necessity. I need to release through painting impulses that are difficult to explain in words. However, the logic behind why I chose this design, this color, this way of painting, and these painting materials can sometimes be analyzed later, but it can also be very complex and contradictory.

There is a sense of describing a story in an illustration-style painting, but apart from a specific narrative, it can represent a moment in many stories. For me, it is up to the viewer to decide how to interpret the painting. When I observe myself and view my work with myself as the audience, I can decipher different content at different times. This makes the possibility that these paintings might be used in a completely different scenario in the next exhibit, which is very interesting.

My panda images were originally created based on a fictional dream and contain metaphors for many social pressures. I would like to borrow from this fictional dream to try to decipher some recent paintings.

This attempt may be a bit neurotic, but it certainly fits my state of mind at a certain stage. Here, as a break, I would like to report on this phase of my work to all of you who have always loved and supported me. I look forward to seeing you all. I also welcome you to purchase my work. Thank you very much.
