My main purpose of stay in TOKAS residency is getting to visit and interact with the cooperators such as artists, collectors, and critics in Tokyo and abroad. For I will meet with experts in video art, contemporary ceramics, and crafts , etc, The cooperator’s fields are various. Additionally, I would like to see works and literature about modern Japanese paintings, that the subject of my works has represented to Yokoyama Taikan and Okakura Tenshin until now. I would like to relativize the perspectives of domestic Japanese toward history and art include my background. The goal is writing the statement to deepen an idea of “Painting of Little Narratives”.
