Mitsuru Koga Yu Shiotsuki Masaaki Hikida
I always have the same theme at the bottom of my heart. It is to express what people cannot see and cannot express, such as space, air, time, and distance. I always try to depict the colorless transparency that exists between the eye and the object, rather than using objects as a medium for unrealistic expression.
There are many thrilling experiences in the process of creation, such as a motif or a stain that is about to be erased creating an unexpected effect, or a phrase that jumps into your eyes or ears and leads you to the completion of the work. I value such “waste” and “noise”. The countless cracks and scratches that I intentionally create are one such example, and recently I have often attached foreign objects and ready-made items to my works. My theme for the future is to weave “trivial myths” through my works and exhibition spaces.
I mainly create works using cats and people as motifs. I hope I could touch someone’s heartstrings by sublimating what I am attracted to and what I find fragile and beautiful into my works through my own filter. Masaaki Hikita HP http://www.masaakihikida.com/
