Kanae Kato

Rape seeds. Hundreds of thousands of flowers bloom from a small seed of black that is less than 2 mm in diameter, and hundreds of thousands of seeds grow. The power of nature. What you can see and what you can't see. I can see what I couldn't see. Countless small seeds are capsules of infinite energy. The small crushed traces on the surface of the clay may be traces that have been sprouting around again.

When I was working on a work that recreated a human form using clay as the main material, I became interested in replicating and repeating from the mold making work, and then developed it into a work using “plates”. I am impressed with the shape of human beings and natural objects at the base, and mainly produce works made of clay (terracotta). In recent years, I have launched a project that considers people and the environment (Y, L, P), received the blessings of the earth, collaborated in rape blossoms and cotton cultivation, and how to incorporate the blessings of nature (materials) I'm looking for it through my five senses.

Shinko Taguchi

Stucco lucido is the one of the three major techniques of buon fresco painting. Under the limited working of 7 hours per day the stucco is painted in dry pigments mixed with water and bee waxed and then polished with a trowel to get shine and unpredictable some changes, which makes me enjoy seeing the unknown from the known. I think that the unknown is to find out hope between the nature and spirit feeling the sky. Constellation on the Jung psychology means that casual occurrences are mutually related. I try to see new scenery by arranging pieces of different landscapes.
