Landscape In My Dream 夢の中の風景

This painting, consisting of 2 paintings, is my latest work.

2枚の絵からなるこの絵は、私の一番最近の作品です。

I wanted to describe landscape in my dream where ratio of things are off, walls are huge and ceilings are high, and abstraction and realism mix.

いろんなものの比率があべこべで、壁が巨大で、天井が高く、アブストラクションとリアリズムが混ざる夢の中の景色を表現しようと試みました。

The dog in the painting is my dog Kuri who is 15 years old now. I haven’t seen him for about 2 years because he is at my parents’ house in Japan. I asked my mom to send a picture of my dog, and couldn’t believe how fucking old he looked with his whiter fur in the picture my mom sent me. He is slowly becoming deaf too. One cold winter night, we adopted him when he was a puppy crying outside of our house. He was a very new and fresh puppy. And now he has become an very old dog. When I witness somebody’s life course, it makes me look at my own life simpler, and it is nice and serene feeling for me. I love my dog. Somehow he managed to knock up my friend’s dog too.

絵の中の犬は私の犬クリで、今は15歳です。私の犬は日本の実家にいるので、私は約2年間クリに会っていません。母親にクリの写真を送ってくれるように頼んで送られた写真を見たとき、クリの毛皮も昔よりも白くなり、信じられないくらい老け込んでいました。彼はゆっくりと耳も聴こえなくなってきています。ある冬の夜、私の家族はクリがまだ子犬だったときに家の外で泣いていたところを引き取ったのでした。彼はとても新しく、フレッシュな子犬でした。そして今彼はとても古く年老いた犬となりました。私が誰かの人生のコースを見るとき、自分自身の人生をよりシンプルに見ることになります、そしてそれは私にとってとても穏やか感覚です。私は私の犬が大好きです。どういうわけか、彼は私の友達の犬を妊娠させることにも成功しました。

I am showing my art (mostly newer ones) at this event called Hostel Takeover. It is at Hostelling International in downtown San Diego this Saturday, 4/14. The address is 521 Market Street. Time is 6pm-11pm. If you happen to be around the area, you should come out. There will be over 25 artists and music acts. I believe there will be free food there too. You can park your car at City College’s parking lot, and there will be shuttle bus running during the event because the parking might be difficult in downtown. Hope to see you there!
