Mitsuru Koga Yumi Nagata Kana Satake Marino Miura 江口武志
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.
Using women and cats as motifs, I create my works with an emphasis on the inner world and presence that can be sensed through the casual expressions and gestures of everyday life.
I create works focusing on familiar animals and plants such as sparrows. I am attracted to their robust and lovely appearance in the changing seasons. I would like to create paintings that give us a sense of peace and tranquility so that we can stop and take a breath in the midst of our fast-paced modern lives.
The theme that I express by copperplate engraving is “Small happiness”. I draw “the story of small life” by overlapping it with small animals, plants and flowers. I am healed and encouraged by the gestures and expressions of animals. They gently remind me that there are important things in the activities we repeat so naturally that we don’t even notice.
