About The Artwork

The 'TRUE-BLUE' series started from a feeling of inferiority and conflict with blue, which I have been unable to deal with as a painter. True-blue is consistent with my worldview in that blue was considered a color symbolizing fidelity in Western civilization a long time ago, and it also refers to a person with an attitude who does not bend his beliefs.

About 《TRUE-BLUE (True Color, Blue)》 Think for a moment before entering the blue-filled universe. It means that nothing is predictable in our world, where everything corresponds to our senses. The terrifying truth that we cannot even predict the nearest future approaches us as an illusion of stability and tilts our minds. We will have to endure and not waste the splendid time of life in which our souls and senses accompany us. I would like to see the above miscellaneous texts as the struggles of a young artist who tried to practice the truth that the better the writing, the shorter and more concise. Anyway, I have been persistently insisting on the rather obvious slogan of 'pictures to see rather than pictures to read' for a short period of time. One day, as the name of an award review by a certain foundation, it was published with a strangely poignant sentence, 'It is thought that he deviates from the trend with a strong image and seeks his own, but it is a bit banal, so it is a pity', but I remember thinking it was just that. . However, I would like to emphasize that the 『TRUE-BLUE (2021~)』 series is a crystal that contains concentration and envy about the pure substance of painting itself. The title "TRUE-BLUE" was named on several solid grounds. First, blue has long been considered a color symbolizing fidelity. Second, it also refers to a person with an attitude that does not bend their beliefs, and it is consistent with my worldview, which I do not want to be caught up in by a trend that will stay for a while and disappear. Let me try to speak in a more realistic language. Just as magnesium deficiency provokes a body reaction called convulsions under the eyes, the old feeling of inferiority towards a specific color was embodied as a will to overcome through painting, and that color was blue. Going back to when I was an apprentice, I came to the question, “Why have I never been proud of blue?” There was no particular reason, but strangely it was. Humans instinctively avoid fear. So, on the one hand, it can be said that my sixth sense has done its job well. However, since I have been facing and overcoming fear rather than avoiding it through painting so far, blue became another object of overcoming and at the same time became the driving force of the TRUE-BLUE series. For the past few years, I have focused on the originality of the material in order not to be swept away by the wave of universality of my work.
