About Gallery Seek
Mitsuru Koga Shiori Chiba Kenta Nakajima
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.
I believe that art is free for both the artist and the viewer. I would be happy if the world I want to express matches the world of someone who sees my work. I want to keep drawing my dream in the reality of creation.
The relationship between a painter and a model is similar to that between a cook and an ingredient. No matter how good a cook you are, if the ingredients are not delicious, you have nothing to show for it. Many women have helped me to become the person I am today. That’s why I want to be able to depict not only the superficial beauty but also the inner strength and kindness of women. I hope that the women depicted in my works will remain with me for a long time to come, and I believe that this will be my way of repaying the women who supported me. (From WORKSOFKENTANAKAJIMA)
