I want to express flowers blooming in the garden, children playing, and warm moments of daily life.
I continue to paint water as a motif. This is because I am fascinated by the mystery and power of life-giving water. In my paintings, both the rich curves and the legal straight lines created by nature are equally encompassed in one organic world. Flowers, goldfish, and seaweed are also depicted as happy symbols around water, and I want to infuse my work with the aesthetic and fundamental sense of color that they reflect in the water.

Bridley, a tin bird, was born as a symbol of time while drawing many old toys. He can’t fly no matter how much he winds the spring, but he is good at jumping. Until the spring gets rusty and stops working. Kenji Shimizu HP http://www.kenji-shimizu.com/indexpage.html
Drawing is the best way for me to express myself. I see the climate of my native country, Japan, where I was born and raised, with my own eyes and draw it as a travelogue. Currently, I have a main theme like “Travels in Japan”, and I am working on the title “Going to Tohoku” as the beginning of the theme. Tomomichi Shimizu HP https://www.studio-asa.net/
It depicts the breath of life, interwoven with small animals and plants living in the wind and the big nature. I hope it will spread your imagination as fresh and clean as the latter. Kazuyuki Sudo HP http://sutooo.net/
In Japanese painting, it is said that “line” is important. However, there are no “contour lines” because all visible things are three-dimensional. Lines” are created when we recognize the shape of objects, but I think they are very ambiguous things that can be greatly changed by different viewing angles and situations. I think that the reason why I draw pictures is to leave a moment of something that is always changing through the filter of myself. Yuka Taguchi HP https://www.yukataguchi.com/
No matter how happy or sad we are, no matter what the weather is like, the four seasons always come and go, and the greenery of the trees and plants remind us of the seasons with their gentle flowers. I am always grateful for the unchanging nature of the seasons, which gives me strength and kindness.
It makes me very happy to know that there are people who see my work, and that it is expanding from a small circle of people I know to a large circle. The reactions of those who have seen the film range from good to bad, from like to dislike, to horrified and creeped out, but each response is a driving force that keeps us moving forward.
