2022

commission FOR private collection / Mr. & Mrs. V

Their order : make an oil painting with specific size and specific main colors.

They found a painting they want in my past works. They wanted to install on the wall in their living room. They have theme for the living room and wanted a painting for the theme. 

I used real moon gold for it. The color of the painting is a little changeable depending on the angle because I layered again and again. 

 

This is one of U-tou-tou series. 

2021

commission FOR public event / ILLTEATRO OPERA CHIYODA

at Sumida Triphony Hall (Tokyo), October 10th, 2021

Their order : make something for each songs which they play at the concert.
I studied each composers' history and song's lyrics meaning from them. Then listened to singers's song which they recommended a lot. Fist, I choose Japanese historical paper Otrinokoshi because I felt asian taste from them. Strauss and Mahler's song which they play have similar themes. However I found Strauss's songs are melodious but Mahler's songs are dramatic. I showed the difference but at the same time I showed the similar themes as well. Ichiyanagi's one is very different from others; very free but it was for the same concert so I used the same material as for other songs.

After making them, I realized that Strauss's winkles on his face are beautiful and drew it on ipad. They loved it so I drew Mahler and Ichiyanagi. They used the data for the video which was projected at the concert.  

The organizers / singers, Mr. Ando and Mrs. Yamahata have strong love and passion for classic songs. I was impressed them so much.
