ARTIST Ryo Kuwamiya
At the root of my work is the fundamental question of why colors and materials themselves are beautiful. Through drawing, the process of understanding the shapes, colors, and light that make up beauty emerges in the form of works. In addition, motifs are often chosen from organic phenomena surrounding one's own external world, such as light seen through space, natural objects such as flowers and minerals, or introspective things such as human vanity. is.
In order to express them, the boundary between whether the motif is abstract or concrete is not very important.
