When I paint the female nude, the combination of sensuous curves and complex colors somehow makes the nude look abstract. To put it another way, the ability to use any color for skin tones without feeling uncomfortable is a pleasure for me. I also enjoy the time I spend looking at the model while I paint, but when I am finishing up, I also find it an indispensable pleasure to “break” the shape of the model and let my imagination take over.
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/
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/
