Until now, paintings have determined various elements such as location, color, shape, composition, size, material, medium, technique, sensibility, originality, and so on, imposing (compelling) these upon the viewer.


The viewer has no choice but to accept them. In other words, when an artist expresses a painting in a specific form, it inevitably creates constraints and a lack of freedom for the viewer.


I believe the painting closest to freedom is one where colors, shapes, expressions, and such are akin to something being generated within the brain of each individual viewer. Paintings should be reborn as something imagined and created within one's own head. If such a painting existed, it could liberate viewers from these constraints and a lack of freedom.


This is a new form of painting. This painting liberates viewers from constraints and a lack of freedom, making paintings that are bound to conventional forms a thing of the past.


Imagine this.

Many people around the world picture that Mona Lisa in their minds, right? Most individuals would probably visualize roughly the same image. But this new painting is different. This new painting allows people around the world, across time and space, to conjure up their own individual images within their heads.


The bare minimum necessary idea for expression (the minimal constraint) is given, but without it, there would be no expression. From this idea as a starting point, each individual imagines and creates in their own colors, shapes, expressions, and interpretations.

In the center, an orange circle is positioned. Around it, rectangles are evenly radiated in eight directions: up, down, left, right, upper left to lower right, and upper right to lower left. The overall shape is reminiscent of a simple sun icon that a child might draw. The rectangles are also represented in orange, but only the one at the very bottom is depicted in gray or silver.

(Can you imagine what is depicted in this painting? It illustrates the power and importance of ideas. Can you see it?


At first glance, it appears to be a sun depicted in orange. However, only the rectangular part at the very bottom of the sun is drawn in gray or silver. The moment you perceive this part as the base of a light bulb, doesn't the sun transform and its shape start to appear as a radiating bulb?


The sun is a symbol of Energy, giving life force to people with its light. And the light bulb represents Ideas. In other words, this painting depicts the message that ideas provide people with vigor, and are indispensable to our lives.)
