Takeshi Kinoshita

Takeshi Kinoshita

I draw the forms of living creatures by utilizing the material characteristics of pigments such as iwa-enogu (mineral pigments) used in Japanese-style painting. I respect the life force, richness, and scale, including the flow of time, that is inherent in living things, and I want to accumulate a dense sense of life in my paintings. I paint with these thoughts as the axis of my work. Primitive materials such as mineral pigments are also rich in time. It is an irreplaceable stimulus for me to mix and reconcile the material and the spirit in one place, the painting.
