In recent years, many natural disasters have occurred, such as a flood every 50 years or a big earthquake every few hundred years. The outbreak of the new coronavirus occurred 100 years after the Spanish flu. In nature, time seems to circulate in a long cycle. It can be called a timeline drawn by nature.
Nakajima Mugi seems to be trying to express it in the picture. Nakajima says we are in the flow of timelines now by his layers of paint. People who stand in front of his timeline experience the moment of staring at the edge of deep time, fascinated by layers of color.
