Takashi Anzai 「Kabuto」
He expresses himself by skillfully picking out the information they seek, such as pictures and words, from the magazines and newspaper inserts around them. He also expresses his emotions through facial expressions, gestures, unspoken tones of voice, and even drawing pictures. Events he is looking forward to, things he is not satisfied with. The daily weather, the changing of the seasons. The movement of Anzai's mind becomes color, and bold brushstrokes and strokes are delicately layered.
This work, titled "Kabuto," was inspired by a helmet decoration he found in an advertisement during the May Festival season. Anzai often uses colorful crayons to draw bold strokes of line across the entire picture plane, but in this work, he replaced the crayons with small "tampons". Blue, yellow, red, light blue, pink, and yellowish green. The colors are heterogeneously blended, and the work has a gravitational pull, as if something elusive, like the source of life, is rising from the bottom of the screen.
