[Tokyo] Kenpei Yunde Solo Exhibition –Happiness on the Soil– April 14(Sat) ― April 30(Sun), 2018

 





Humans are considering things and creating things. For example, making and using vessels, cultivating soil, growing flowers and decorating them, believing in the existence of God. I think that they are all human activities to be happy in order to live on the earth.
I still believe that all the motifs are present on the “soil”. No matter what I paint: plants, water, air or dishes, I do not feel right unless I begin the process of paint starting from the “soil”.
For the series of painting of the Japanese Constitutions which became the turning point of my career as an artist, I deeply considering what would be human’s happiness.
I constantly ask by myself what would be human activities from a fundamental perspective in order to draw the painting.

〇The days artist in the gallery 3/17,18,19

Itoshima is a city located in Fukuoka Prefecture, which is surrounded by sea and mountains, and also nurturing rich nature. Takeshi’s art works are created in an old blacksmith’s shop as renovated to be his atelier there. The portrait paintings fill with sorrow and the still-life paintings of winter melon, which is full of energy, are painted on the hand-made panels or nature wood boards. The pleasant objects are made from the driftwood or waste lumbers that were found by the artist while he was taking a walk along the beach. Full of poetic sentiment and tenderness, Takeshi Wei’s art works’ world exists between the life of an art painter and a human itself. Please enjoy the exhibition.

The presence of the intangibles, such as the wind or clouds, the sky or space, what are wrapped us isn't the nature of nature?
