About the Face (name) series

In 2021, he began to create portraits based on photographs of wounded soldiers from the Revolutionary War and World War I. At first, it was just one flow of continuous production for me, but unexpectedly, the flow of the real world merged into a river, and I suffered a big pain that I could not have imagined.

The strong connection within me of painting-female-passive things began to transform in this series. Until now, the image of a girl was often drawn, but the image drawn in this series isBased mainly on photographs of soldiers with facial scars, they all look asexual, both male and female.

I give each piece a name.

About the Face (name) series

In 2021, I began making portrait works based on photographs of wounded soldiers from the Revolutionary War and the First World War. At first, it was a continuous stream of production for me, but beyond my expectations, the currents of the real world merged into a great river, and I experienced a great hurt that I had not thought of.

My strong connection between painting - women - passive began to transform with this series. Whereas in the past I had often depicted images of girls, in this series the images are mainly based on photographs of soldiers with facial injuries, and all appear to be female , male or asexual.

I have given each of these works a name.

Her body, was made for... Ⅰ




During the Nazi occupation of France, women who had relations with German soldiers or had children with them were called "Collaboration" and their heads were cut off and dragged around in public after the war. The images are taken from the photographs and displayed as if they were drawn from the reverse side of transparent paper and viewed from the front, in colors that are almost transparent. The paper is fixed as if hung or crucified.

少女マンガにおいて脇役である母と、主役である娘たちのイメージを表裏に描き、 蜜蝋で閉じ込める。何度もそれを繰り返し、半透明の紙が生まれる。 光を透過する窓に展示すると、時間と共に見えるイメージが変化していく。

In shōjo manga, the mother is a supporting character. The images of the mother and the daughters, who are the main characters, are drawn on the front and back sides of the paper, which is then sealed with beeswax. The process is repeated many times to produce translucent paper. When displayed in a light-permeable window, the images change with time.
