Where Do We Come From? Where Are We Going?

どこから来たか、どこへ行く

本タイトルは、ゴーギャン作『我々はどこから来たのか 我々は何者か 我々はどこへ行くのか』に由来している。

画家が古くから取り組んできた根源的題材を現代の画家の視点で描くことで現代社会の本質的な問いを描こうと試みている。


 

” will remind of the Paul Gauguin’s most important work “Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?” [1897].
This series has the magnificent concept how can painter face the primordial question that many masters [Caspar David Friedrich,Paul Gauguin and others] have featured it in the past and no one has found the answer or there is a no answer.
The great earthquake in 2011 made me set to work on this series to reflect on the primordial question of human.
I will keep making this series together with other series throughout my lifetime.
