Kōrin Flowers and Water

Comments from the artist:

The work is based on a masterpiece fan painting by Ogata Kōrin, a genius painter from the Edo period. There is a river depicted in the upper part of the work, and under the representation of the river, on this side, so to speak, there are flowers. As commonly noted, when the camera was invented, it was proven that painters focus on their subjects of interest by placing them in prominent positions—in other words, that they employ the multi-point perspective of the human eye. This work embodies this idea.
