Tohru Matsushita/松下徹 -1984
Matsushita's painting is created through the process of applying chemical paints to the canvases, causing cracks to appear on the surface. The unique process was developed from his interest in traditional Japanese arts, such as the golden folding screens that changes its expression in reflection to the lightings, and the way traditional potters make different appearance of Ido bowls according to the liquid solutions they apply to the material. By using modern technique of graffiti on the street, Matsushita challenges to create artwork beyond his intention and readable concept, but the phenomenon that occurs as a result of his actions.


車やキャンバスの表面に、独自に配合した化学塗料を用いてペイントし、塗装面にひび割れを起こす絵画を制作するアーティストです。コンセプトや自らの作意性を越えた、ある現象の結果として生まれた一つの「絵」は、日本古来の表現方法である光で表情を変化させる金屏風や、釉薬の配合によって豊かな表現を生み出す井戸茶碗に通じる精神に共感する松下の考えから生み出されています。
