LOST SPACES – Presentation by the galery.
There are many lost spaces in our daily lives. When you see buildings that are being torn down, or conversely built up, the atmosphere of that space also disappears. Also, with the invisible radiation in today's Japan polluting the air, there will probably be more "lost spaces" in the future.
If we think of "space" as our own, this refers to the private space that surrounds us, and when "others" come into that space, we are directly affected and must confront this intrusion. And that "other" has their own history, their own memory.
In many ways, we are losing spaces. Is it just a matter of changing according to the times?
My own interpretation of the theme:
Lost space, here, is lost time between two moments where water color and ink on paper create spontaneous structures of beauty. Up until the drying point, the ephemeral liquid movements combined with the absorption coefficient of the receiving paper are continuously lost in their random equilibriums they shape into. In that micro world, I try to capture shapes and unexpected scenes. Attentively looking in the “flow of time” we find beautiful hidden “lost-scapes”. With two instants facing each other we can appreciate difference and “lost space”.
