・Yasuhiro Tsutsumi (oil painting)

[Work concept]

Scrape the colors over and over.

The scenery that emerges every time you repeat that simple act.

It is a unique trace that exists on the flowing time axis.

The traces are the true nature of things, where the events that occur before our eyes will someday disappear.

Its natural fragility becomes a beautiful mass that lands on the canvas.

[Thoughts about the work]

The theme is the tradition of the "Papier-mache Tiger", a folk craft representative of Japan.

It is a piece of work that has been creatively painted and sent to the world as a work of art.

Please discover new charms while keeping the adorable way she shakes her head.

・Kiharago (tempera painting)

[Thoughts about the work]

I draw motifs based on casual events and memories that I have in my memory. I'm sure there are some memories in your memory that you can recall by looking at pictures. I hope that you will enjoy interacting with the pictures by imagining such memories. The painting technique is "tempera painting", a Western classical technique. A plaster base is prepared on a board, gold leaf is applied and polished to a mirror-like surface, and pigments and egg yolk are mixed together to create paint one color at a time. Although it takes time and effort to produce, it is said to have excellent color reproduction and durability. Please take a look at his works, which are attractive in their simple and unique shapes and pop color balance, mainly due to the profoundness and vivid colors produced using the tempera painting method.

・Tsukino Kaeru (resin)


Born in 1963.

Since her high school classes, she got a job at an IT company as a system engineer without receiving any art education.

At the age of 46, when she was in middle management, she became ill and during her six-month leave of absence she began painting.

She retired from her previous job at the age of 56 and devoted herself to writing.

Her act of painting, which she started at the age of 46, was for me to bring back my childhood love for her.

Crafts were something she loved when she was a child. Her current work is an extension of this.

Her motif is what I like. Therefore, there are no negative elements.

It depicts things that are nostalgic, full of a sense of the future, and provide positive feelings that children who are in the period of altimeter regrowth will be interested in.

Using a unique method of printing original digital illustrations created on a computer, cutting parts, layering them, coating them with resin (transparent resin), and adding decorations, we create art that you have never seen anywhere else. Masu.

The flow of time and trace of run

- LEE, KOO HA - 

- PATINA –   

  Can we express ourselves with painting? This is the question whether we can depict not external but internal self-portraits. These days we think it the most urgent issues to have a mutual understanding and integration among people in the various field. It is certain that  the best way to solve the problem is harmony and conversation. However, the most important thing is to check "who I am." "Where I am now" before expressing our positions in the relation  of a country. To have a mutual understanding and integration in the country, we must communicate with inner selves. It's because we go in a deep and wide relationship after we restore the serenity of our own. This artist tries to shape his paintings  in the most humane way. This is the attempt that he tries to fill the empty space of 'self' that he did not know or he wanted to know.  What does the painting mean with the working tool of 'time' as a way to find 'self'? In what kind of shape can his nature and 'self' as a painting face? I try to find my answer in his name 'turtles (龟) and water (河)' for a way to find 'self'. It was vividly revealed in his art world.  Though he started to find the motif from his name, he tries to approach 'self' by grafting painting techniques and his view of the world. So painting work is a "self-finding" process in him and finishing operation is self-revealing. So we must follow 'points' and 'lines' of  brush with childlike innocence, He believes it the source of 'self' that all forms that made of in the course of painting from the motif  'turtles (龟) and water (河)' , What makes him believe that a form made of 'points' and 'lines' is another 'self'? It's because he believes that he thinks it not a simple task of brushstroke but the flow of time and the trace of run, so he can be whichever it is: a turtle, a painter and whatever.......  and the trace is the time when he has lived and will live. Therefore an artist can not exist as long as time hasn't passed and I think  he must owe time to this work. I do not doubt that this work in which he has endured the flow of time and run is the process of  heading to the door of another communication that is beyond 'self'.

・Takechakoff (Illustration)

[Thoughts about the work]

It's strange, but there's a landscape that makes me feel nostalgic.

Even though it's your first time, you feel like you've had the same experience before.

Memories are very vague and uncertain.

Things that impressed me with beauty have faded,

Things that I avoided when I was bored will shine,

Scenes in memory change in appearance.

I create works while swimming in these memories.

I would be happy if it could be used as an opportunity to open a ``window of memory'' for those who watched it.

・Shimada Stratos (Illustration)

[Thoughts about the work]

My age is secretly from the supercar generation.

He has a past as a highly successful illustrator in Fukuoka.

His hobby is martial arts, and he aspires to become a boxer, but he breaks his fist and gives up.

When he was feeling irritated, a senior painter told him to draw a picture, which inspired him to make up his mind.

He has already painted extensively for clients. From now on, he will draw whatever picture he likes.

That's what he thought.

He wanted to draw things with wheels and engines. That's how I draw every day.

His special skill is being able to jump on a balance ball.

・Yuzuru (calligraphy)

[Thoughts about the work]

These works are based on the traditional style of calligraphy, in which characters are written using ink and brush. I want to express the inner part of human beings (=heart).

We humans perceive events that occur through our bodily sensations, verbalize them, think about them, and try to express them in various ways. I often feel a slight disconnect between that ambiguous feeling and the words that express it. This ``invisible heart'' can be the margins or fluctuations in a work. What is emitted from the work is the raw energy of humans. I hope that those who watch it can feel that, even if just a little bit.

She began her career as an artist in 2008 and has exhibited at numerous exhibitions and won awards.

Currently, he works at Kukan Geijutsu TORAM, where he continues to produce his works while working in exhibition planning and management.

[Thoughts about the work]

He is fascinated by flowers and has been painting them in watercolor since 2010.

Through flowers, he is able to understand their existence not only through the visible things;

Learn that there is a rich meaning in things that cannot be seen.

Time and events folded into a plane become reality within me.

Everything is alive in a quiet space, and the flowers are fragrant and beautiful.

It colors and expands the space.

It heals itself.

・Nawate Hideki (watercolor)

・Takashi Ito (wood carving)

[Thoughts about the work]

Ever since I was a child, I was not good at expressing my feelings through words.

I feel like other people saw me as someone who didn't think about anything unless I said it out loud.

Still, I feel that by making things, I have been able to connect with others and society.

I create while thinking that everyone has words in their hearts, even if they don't say them out loud.

[Thoughts about the work]

The production process begins by listening to the voices of the things that are repeatedly saturated and discarded in daily life.

Information from the past and things that have completed their original role are reduced to pieces, and the colors and colors used as art materials today.

Revived as a texture.

This work intentionally does not have a top and bottom, but instead envisions a playful space or installation based on the environment and combinations.


Mixed media (painting, collage, sewing machine work)

Plywood panels, found objects, fabrics, paper, threads, pigments, etc.

[Thoughts about the work]

Born in 1975, from Saitama Prefecture. Graduated from Tokyo International University in 1997. While attending school, he was interested in computers, and after graduating, he joined Nippon System Technology Co., Ltd. He is involved in system development as an SE. As his vision loss due to glaucoma progressed, he felt he had reached his limits as an engineer and retired. Since 2010, he has been studying under photographer Yukinori Tokoro. Since then, his glaucoma has progressed and he has undergone four surgeries since 2015, and now has a tube and plate in his left eye. As of 2022, most of the visual field in his left eye has disappeared. After he began undergoing surgery, he began creating the ``MONOCLE VISION'' series, a series of works that express ``invisible vision.'' Around the same time, he also began taking rehearsal portraits of Gohei Nishikawa, the "seven-fingered pianist." His main equipment is Sony α1, α7III, and RICOH GR3. In August 2020, he appeared on NHK E-Tele's program as a glaucoma patient/photographer. His solo exhibition “MONOCLE VISION” will be held in April 2022. He is a regular member of the Glaucoma Friends Network.

[Profile, thoughts on the work]

Born in 1986 in Toyonaka City, Osaka Prefecture. He is a Libra. He is a night owl.

In 2023, he quit the company where he worked as a product planner for women's shorts and began production activities.

He currently works at a wine bar in Osaka and creates music after returning home late at night.

He was born and raised along the Hankyu line, rode the Hankyu train from an early age, and the only department store he thought of was Hankyu Department Store.

I am filled with great joy to be able to participate in this project in the faraway land of Fukuoka.

For me, department stores are a place filled with many dreams and aspirations.

I decided to exhibit it at this location, and this time it served as an opportunity for me to start producing, and last year I won an award at an international public exhibition.

In addition to the “Look Up” series of portraits facing upward,

I drew the 12 constellations as motifs, which I have long admired to draw.

Please enjoy looking for each constellation.

・Mitsutoshi Sunahara (acrylic)

[Thoughts about the work]

In my work, I have considered the ``poetic things'' that appear in the process of turning words into poetry to be the most important thing. Hoping to embed that "poetic thing" into his works, he continues to paint landscapes on the "other side" where cities are multilayered. The city depicted in the work is a city that is ``somewhere but here,'' and it is a landscape that is not on this side but on the other side. And from that city, which we can never reach, a vague ``light'' rises. Perhaps these are our dreams and hopes for the future. By depicting the city as a landscape, I would like to depict things on the "other side" that are out of reach.

・Aya Sekiguchi (acrylic)

【profile 】

Born in Toyama Prefecture in 1983. While working as an office worker, she began painting on her own and in 2017.

She concentrates more on her painting career. Since her first solo exhibition in 2015, she has had numerous solo and group exhibitions both domestically and internationally.

In addition to continuing to present her works through

She also offers her work.

Her work revolves around the opposing light and darkness of the natural world, something that Sekiguchi felt most strongly about.

Colors of nature - ``Blue'' is a mixture of dark blue, green, and white to vividly capture nature.

There is. The plants, animals, and sea stones that appear as her motifs have inspired her since her childhood.

What continues to fascinate her. They have been given a new lease of life by her, and are fresh and fresh.

Her dignified tranquility and gentleness fascinate the viewer.
