      ARTIST: NOMA

      STATEMENT : Contemporary Man_ 21st Century's Mona Lisa

      "Contemporary Man_ 21st Century's Mona Lisa"

      In order to live universally, we may hide our true selves.

      It's like wearing a thick coat even in the summer heat.
      Sometimes we wander and forget who we are and why we are breathless in this space.

      For modern people, yearning for a future they have never experienced or wishing to have hope through artificial, unreal light (such as LED lights) is like a mirage in the desert, and it is difficult to realize it in reality. Not the target.

      Also, although it is difficult for landscape painters to depict the human form, they are able to express the essential desires and feelings of modern people through landscape paintings.

      Painters who paint night scenes desire complete darkness.
      They depict unexpressed human emotions and depict complex landscapes that are difficult to express.

      Isn't that because people (their emotions) are being overlooked, which cannot be captured just by drawing landscapes?

      By painting not only landscapes but also unexpressed human emotions, you can express the essence of modern people.

      This is the starting point for the ``Contemporary Man_ 21st Century's Mona Lisa'' series.

      The inner world of a person cannot be captured with the naked eye, but artists use their own words to depict their explosive energy.
      Emotions evoked in an instant can reach an abyss that cannot be defined in words.
      The expression may be dust flying through the air or a blob of acrylic paint firmly fixed to the canvas.

      Contemporary Man_ 21st Century's Mona Lisa.

      In order to live universally, we often hide our true selves, much like a person wearing a thick coat in the heat of summer.

      Sometimes, we aimlessly wander, forgetting who we are and why we are here, struggling to breathe in the space around us.

      For a contemporary man, the longing for a future that has never been experienced, or the desire to be infused with hope by artificial light, is like a mirage in the middle of the desert. Though the artist who painted the landscape may have difficulty seeing the shape of a person, they will be able to capture the essence of contemporary people who are constantly seeking to grow and escape boredom in search of novelty.

      The artist who painted the night view with the hope of complete darkness leaves behind jumbled landscapes to draw unexpressed human emotions.

      Is it because people who cannot be reduced to mere scenery are overlooked?

      The Contemporary Man_ 21st Century's Mona Lisa is the starting point of this series.

      Although the inner state of a person cannot be perceived with the eyes,

      the artist depicts explosive energy in their own language.

      Emotions that are triggered instantaneously reach an abyss that cannot be defined in words.

      It could be dust flying in the air or a clump of acrylic paint firmly tucked onto the canvas.
