ARTIST Kotaro Otsuka / Otsuka Kotaro

      When I'm thinking about things, there are times when I forget that time has passed and just sit in a daze. At that moment, my field of vision was blurry, with nothing in focus, and for some reason it felt good.
      Through my works, I am freed from the concept of time and seek out the wasteful and ambiguous world that just lies there.
