Against the black background, silhouettes that accurately represent the motifs emerge. However, the patterns drawn on the black background are too flat and decorative, and this gap is the consistent appeal of Iwase's works.
This is especially true in this work, where butterflies, grotesquely covered in full-body patterns, are flying in the sky all at once.
This may be a butterfly, but it is a completely different creature, far removed from the dainty and harmless word "butterfly. Butterflies are said to exist in almost all terrestrial environments, except Antarctica. The butterflies are said to exist in almost all terrestrial environments, except Antarctica, and their voracious adaptation to harsh environments seems to reveal the misery of butterflies as a species.

Born in 1973. Lives and works in Shiga Prefecture. Belongs to Yamanami Kobo in the same prefecture.
Since 2008, he has been a member of Yamanami Kobo in the same prefecture. When he decides on a motif, whether it is a person or an animal, he slowly draws it on the entire surface of the paper without leaving any blank space, using his own unique perspective. His introverted and serious personality is reflected in his work, and each line he draws is very careful and delicate, as if it were a fine thread intertwined. In his daily life, he rarely speaks, and even when asked for his opinion, he only says a few words in a faint voice with a blush on his face. He is another artist who has found a way to express himself through his work, and his worldview will continue to expand.
