I am interested in altering a format, structure, manners and process of the “painting” or “art exhibition”. Sometimes I emphasize a picked factor: color, material, meaning, relation between painting and viewer, which exists in paintings. Another time I make a situation along an assumption, and show it as an installation.
“Triple Double” means that “The achievement of a two-digit number of any three of point scored, assists, rebounds, blocks, or steals in a single game“ in basketball. A couple of paintings increase repeatedly from this project.
The first painting [A] will be made from picking a visual image up by research, learning, daily lives in Berlin. The second painting [A ’] responds to a factor ( image, color, material and so on ) in the first painting.
The second time – first painting [B] will be made from focusing another motivation, but there is a relation to [A] or [A’]. I will continue that process at the residency. I hope that the viewers are able to have multiple points of view from these works.
