Artist’s message

I guess a quite few people would say their favorite color is blue.

The word ‘blue’ did not even exist before the Middle Ages.
So blue has only been a popular color for less than 1000 years.

Historically, the color blue has been treated as a secret and something noble, in particular it was chosen as the color for illustrations of the Virgin Mary and King Arthur.

I don’t know why, but I feel tranquil when I’m around blue. And that tranquility invites me to the eternity of the universe.

This exhibition, “recollection of blue,” is based on my poem entitled, “Place where stars are created.” The show contains scenes of a star creating other stars and letting them depart to the universe. Tiny new-born stars are leaving their mother star. That’s how all stars start their long journey to convey profound life to somebody somewhere.

I would be happy if you could feel the chains of life in universe in the eternal gradations of the color blue in this exhibition.
