Reflected Stillness III is part of my “reflections” series, which was first inspired by a visit to Norway. This abstract landscape shows a woodland reflected in a body of water; although inspired by a park near Bergen, this painting depicts an imaginary world full of ambiguity. The neutral palette blends with a subtle interaction creating extra dimensions of colour movement in a visual sense. It represents the stillness and simplicity of nature, an undisturbed place, perhaps somewhere holy.
My work is created using a combination of materials, including oil paint, metal leaf, and patination. These together give the painting a life of its own, and it changes dramatically according to the light strength and kind, the time of day, and whether under natural or artificial light.
As a Japanese artist, my work is influenced by the beauty and organic decay of nature, and is the result of a long negotiation between the artist and the natural processes of patination.
The work is signed on the back.
