Artist Comments

A Walk in the Rain

Invited for a walk by a rain-loving friend. In the quiet patter of the rain, where should we go today?

 

Floating in the Sea

It’s time for a quick dip in the sea to escape from the heat of the sun. It feels so good to drift along. Where will I drift off to?

 

Blossom Time

Growing and blooming in the sun, Spring has arrived!

 

Ruby

Walking with such tenacity, you are a flashing red jewel on my finger.

Hours - Appearing as part of our "Japan Zoo" Exhibition

Posted by virg on July 18, 2012 at 3:10 AM Comments comments (0)

Hours

Hours was born in 1993 in Kanagawa prefecture. This year she entered a female arts university where she studies craft arts. As a student she is still exhibiting at art and craft fairs around Japan. 

Hours completes the majority of her works in pen, using her own sketches or photos as reference. The multitudes of circles around the animals link her two works. The artist says she likes to think of the circles as representing the world around the animals. They represent the atmosphere, the masses of air or water that we usually can’t see. This is Hours’ first international exhibition.

 

Artist Comments

「Confidence」

I drew a peacock I saw at the zoo in this work. He walked around with such elegance that it really struck me. Even without his plumage on show, he was so beautiful. I wanted to show his composure and pomp.

 

「Depth」

I love sea turtles the best of all animals. They traverse the Pacific Ocean making their long journey despite the numerous dangers. I find this so romantic and appealing. In this work I wanted to show the grace of the turtle as he swims through the deep sea.
