The story from three topics


My paintings often combine seemingly unrelated motifs such as leopards, flowers and spiral staircases. Actually, this is based on the “three topics stories” at Rakugo. Rakugo storyteller sometimes performs a rakugo story on the spot based on three topics given by the audience (I’m not familiar with it, though). In case of my works, each topic uses something that sparks on my brain, so I don’t think deeply why I combined them. Rather, definite theme or topic limit my range of imagination and it makes me suffer. Anyways I think it’s okay if the observers can freely imagine something from its peculiar combination 🙂
