Head Space Series

I finished a new series called “Head Space” that consists of 5 paintings. When I started painting a few years ago, my approach to visual art was to create something that’s visually pleasing for me because visual art is visual art: it is good if I enjoy making art: putting meanings on paintings are not always necessary. But this time I consciously took a different approach. For this series, I created a main character and made the series around him. The approach was to create (paint) the space that doesn’t physically exist but does exist through his perceptions and experiences. I put commentaries for some of the paintings. Hope you enjoy the series.


(1)Attempt to Organize Information 情報整理の試み

In this painting, boxes and shapes are the information that floats in the reality, but they are unorganized and not making sense. He is reaching for the scene or some sort of point of view or understanding that he might be able to see by trying to connect pieces of information with the telephone-wire like wires.


(2)Resident in the Music 音楽の中の居住者

(3)Rain and the Window 雨と窓

(4)Childhood and Kokoro 子供時代とこころ

I think “Kokoro” is a unique Japanese word. English translation for “kokoro” would be mind or heart, but “kokoro” has a difference nuance and feel.


(5)Unbiased Yet Limited Sight 先入観のない、しかし限られた視覚

He is trying to see the world with unbiased eyes, but his sight is still limited.


If you feel like supporting my art through facebook, I have a page called Space House People.

Thank you!
