Small Pieces 8


"Golden Moon on the Flow"/ Miki Ohno

Torn Japanese colored paper and acrylic resin on 5.5 × 7 inches paper board.

Getting used to the "Tiny Pieces" of 2 inch square during these 3 months, this "Small Piece" was a big challenge to me.   I needed a little more of a stretch to create this landscape.
Almost every time at the beginning of painting, i get lost and start thinking of it might be wrong, failure and trash.  At the last part, some fortune and coincidence rescue me to show much less than what I was planning and something a little more than I expected.  This complex feeling motivates me to start the next piece. 

14cm×18cmのペーパーボードに和紙をアクリル樹脂で貼付けています。
ここ3ヶ月ほど5cm四方のTiny Piecesを制作するのに慣れていたので、この大きさでも
かなり広大に感じます。今回は風景画として少々広がりが欲しかった為、このサイズに
なりました。
たいがい描き始めには、あ、こりゃいかん駄目だ失敗だゴミだ...と思うのですが、
終盤には何やら幸運と偶然に救われて、プラン通りの結果には遠く及ばず、それでいて
期待していた以上の効果がほんの少し生まれたりします。そのような、すっきりしない
気持ちが次作へのモチベーションになります。

  1. yes there is a flowing movement
    which works in the rectangle.

    It is a field which can be viewed
    from above or from the side.

    Are they intentionally a landscape?.

    Or do you allow for them to develop
    into that?

    P.

  2. Thank you for your insight.
    I'm willing to leave it to the viewers because I always feel like others and external factors as coincidence develop my works. There isn't specific intention as it could be modified better sometimes.
