Archive for January, 2011

Today, an art director is coming to my studio and we discuss about my portfolio for university and my second solo exhibition in 2011. I am willing to talk about both things. However, I have not passed an English exam so when I paint pictures usually it disturbs my concentration. Next month there are  a lot of things which I have to do. Surprisingly, I have not caught a cold since the beginning of last year. Therefore I should make a record for cold. Bay the way,  see you January and hello February !

Time goes by so quickly. However, I still remember my first solo exhibition in 2010 clearly  because it was very significant  development in my life. On the other hand, I was really suffering the dead line for the show exactly in this time in last year. At that time I had not finished one of my paintings before the beginning of exhibition. I was extremely anxious about it like a hell ,but fortunately I was able to finish it before 3 hours from the opening reception. Of course I pretended to be nice for the guests with smile yet I really breathed a sigh of relief secretly. I had had a hamburger from Hero Certified Burgers before the solo show because of making confidence like a HERO!  Perhaps I will go to the diner again before my second solo exhibition. That mean I will discuss the date with the dealer soon….

From Japan.

Yesterday after school I went to a post office because my mom had sent me a package and finally it had arrived here. I did not expect that it was quite big and pretty heavy so I wondered that what kind of things she sent me. Actually I requested her to send an English word book because a couple month ago I lost it somewhere, maybe in the subway, libraries or shopping centre. I often looked at it on the way to school and  on the way to go home so as to increase my vocabulary.

Please understand my poor English because studying language is totally difficult for me!! By the way, When I opened my package I immediately recognized that what she put in it. She got my favourite snacks into it. To be honest I am not particular about food ,but I do not really want to eat snacks such as potato chips, chocolate bars and so on. Therefore, I was not excited about any snacks and sweets except for Rice Cracker! Rice Cracker is absolutely one of my favourite snacks which reminds me my grand father’s home and taste is great. Actually I really love SOMA chocolate yet I sometimes extremely miss this snack because it is difficult for me to get it in Toronto. Although I am learning Northern American Culture right now, I can not quit eating it!!

Invisible images.

Actually I finally have finished my new work which is a sculpture ,but  I did not have any ideas how I can take a nice and attractive pictures with my skill because I am not good at taking photographs. To be honest, I am not arrogant yet I am satisfied with it. No!! I should not say that I have not be satisfied yet because artists must not feel satisfaction for works. So I was thinking any possibility of taking my ideal photos. When I looked around in my studio my neighbour’s cat was looking at me from the different building then I realized that the cat owner is a photographer and writer. Maybe I can ask him to take pictures for my work!! Fortunately, I was lucky because he accepted my asking agreeably and I had a good talk with him.

So this is a picture from my recent work.

Oops! I put a unclear filter on it because I would like to keep secret until my next exhibition!!

Please understand me!!

White as snow.

I woke up early in the morning and opened the door in the kitchen. My neighbourhood was already  covered by snow profoundly. It was totally white and absolutely silent like everything is nothing. In addition, I want to quote wards which is ” through a tunnel and there was snow country.”  from Yasunari Kawabata who is a great writer  in Japan.

“This mean is that finally real winter comes to the city of Toronto. Actually it is not so surprising ,but for me I am kind of exited about a lot of snow. When I was in Japan I  played with snow even I grow up too. Moreover, it reminds me of my grandfather. When I was little, I used to go to his place in the winter and I he used to play with me and give me icicles from roofs. they were very beautiful with I still remember. However, recently there is few snow in my town because of changing weather and temperature. So, some people living in my town are grad to the happen yet I am pretty sad.

Indeed, my opinion is rather childish, but I do not want to forget my good memory with my grandfather. that is why I painted “fleeting gem “.  This is not my new painting. Nevertheless, I just remember it because of this time.

Serious Sweet

This is a baking book which I bought for my Christmas gift myself last year.

In eace pages there are splendid cake images which really inspires me with creative because those are including various vivid colours and look absolutely delicious. Also, decoration is so beautiful and I can guess they are very fragile. However, I do not often eat any sweets except “SOMA Chocolate”and I prefer to enjoy imaging tastes, texture and so on from beautiful decoration.

For instance, purple cream would be tasted blue berry or soda and yellow cream might be pine, banana and mango.Nevertheless, my roommate told me that those motifs are mostly made of a lot of sugar like icing. To be honest I have known it since I came to Canada. When I first saw it, I was absolutely interested in it because I had never seen such a colourful cake and I had no idea for the taste. Actually I tried on it yet I did not agree with it because it was incredibly sweet for me.

One the other hand, one day my roommate brought me some sweet from his coworker’s party and I tasted them. However, I was not able to eat since they were also very sweet. I felt that my teeth were melted. I do not exaggerate my story and not insult this different culture. I just concern about avoiding bad teeth because consulting a dentist is tremendously expensive for foreign students.

Therefore, I got inspiration from my experiences then I painted this picture which is called ” Taste Like Melting Teeth” in 2009. My paintings mostly consist on my own experience. I think today’s topic is pretty serious and hopefully you enjoy my writing.
