The 213rd Exhibition Keiji Ito/Hiroki Taniguchi/Hiro Sugiyama February 4(Wed.) - 28(Sat.),2004

It is interesting that we three were chosen to be the first in this series. We're strangely connected publicly and privately. The concept this time of hand-drawings was to be expected. While we all probably have digital expressions in our own methods, here we especially looked into the power of the hand. This is not sentiment about a disappearing technique. We saw an idea for an attitude toward production in expressions by hand. We felt a physical mentality. This is no super skill but rather something very human, soiled from handling, done in one's free time. It might be primitive markings rather than drawing. Might we be painting expressions that pose the most basic riddle of why we are here? The picture depicted in paint is also an artifact. The pervasiveness of digital prints is accelerating. Yet the people who create never forget what everyone knows that it is something natural. We three put flesh on nature and dyed the spirit. As with a bouillon cube, we hesitatingly dissolve a piece of an idea to flavor our creations everyday.
