My latest small sized Japanese painting was completed. The scary part of Japanese painting is that I forget the procedure if I neglect it a little. I titled it “Milky way” because I wanted to express the universe sometime. But if you think it looks like water, it’s okay. It doesn’t matter what it looks like:) It would be a series of positive art, I suppose. I’ll think about the message from now on.
A proponent of positive art are already emerging. She’s a great Mexican artist living in Berlin, and her art style is semi-abstract oil painting using vivid color composition. I lived neighborhood of her apartment. First, we’ll try out the prototype work with a small number of members, and set in how to proceed. In the end, I hope we can hold a group exhibition at Berlin or somewhere. Now, when I can come back to Germany, that’s what I wanna know it the most:p
Our direction of collaborative art was decided. We’ll express the Art containing positive messages so that observers can feel a hope, healing and delight. Now the world is covered in, if anything, negative mood by social oppression, peer pressure and , above all, restrictions on freedom. We Japanese sometimes use a proverb “the mental causes illness”. It means that negativity such as bad thinking, dismal prediction and uneasiness pull in disease(evil). Conversely, positivity like a cheerful pushes aside evil. On scientific field, it’s actually proved positive mind enhances immune system. We wanna deliver the positive mind through art, and it would be nice if a good circulation of positivity occurs between observers. On my statement, I write a similar content, but one visitor came to my solo exhibition in Berlin said “it’s a naive thinking. This world is fulfilled by darkness, so artist should express a theme reflects the social situation.” My opinion is the opposite. Indeed various crazy incidents are happening there, but we can move forward by having a hope rather than being drawn to it. At least, I don’t want to express the despair and satire. My current target is to expand this positive art as a big project while involving my artist friends in Berlin. Acting towards aims will make me cheerful:)
It was decided that ex-shared mates (sound artist) in Berlin and me collaborate on the works each other. They’ll make a music and I’ll make a painting while uniting the common theme and the image. Now they are in England, so our distance is far away but we can connect through art. How fantastic☆ We’ll make a detailed plan from now on. Can’t wait:)
Under this circumstances, there’re some things that do not exceed smoothly. My will that I wanna present my art from Germany there doesn’t change, but my way is stagnant, blocked by an obstacle that I can’t help myself. God damn it. Now I’m considering how to proceed. In the end, I have to do my best what I can do just now, though. And I create fun anytime:)
