Depiction Phenomenon Diagram
The act of painting is repeated over and over again on a single canvas. Without thinking, I simply draw lines and add colors. The process continues until a phenomenon similar to that of a drop of water depressing a rock, or similar to various phenomena that occur in nature, such as the surface of a tree, mountain, or water, occurs on the canvas. There is no intention or self-expression in how I paint. It will not be a natural phenomenon in painting. I call it “Describing Phenomena,” and I am working on it, hoping that by continuing to paint without thinking, something pure will emerge.
I used a color that I casually picked up.
I have been trying to express on this screen the sensations that I have been trying to express in my outdoor works. I don’t know how it will turn out, but I’m thinking of ending it when I get close to a new feeling or the feeling I mentioned earlier.

After I finished drawing yesterday, I used a knife to scrape off what I had so far from my change of mind. There is no such thing as losing track of time and getting carried away. I thought it was just a way to pass the time. And today, I worked on it with what […]
I wanted a bright red color on the way. As I was filling the screen with it, I wanted to cover the red with some other color. The color that I ended up with was green, almost gray, and I wondered what kind of senses were at work that instinctively made me choose the opposite […]
Looking at what I painted yesterday, I felt purple. I continued to draw lines mainly using that color. It took about two hours. The way I drew seemed to be much more stable. Later, I realized that I wondered why they gathered in the center. I also began to use the second technique to consciously […]
I was not in a good mood while I was drawing. When you decide to do something, it becomes compulsive and you hate it. Maybe this act is letting out the pus inside of me. And I understand myself better. I never thought it would be so difficult to simply draw lines and place colors.
I have been working within the framework of confrontational painting, but I thought it would be good to stop trying to express what I see and feel and just draw lines all over the place. I thought it would be good to stop trying to express what I see and feel and just draw lines. […]
