Shintaro OHATA
"Ohayou Sekai -Good morning,world-"(latest work!!)


Year 2013
Media mixed media
Size Painting 80.3×65.2cm Sculpture 126×30×30cm

I think that the scenery reflected in the glass(mirror) is like the world on the canvas.I aim to express the atomosphere of my work more by depicting a human figure and mirror together.


"Mother"(Latest work!!)


YEAR 2013
Media camphor tree,magnolia,crystal
Size 65×60×40cm

The kanji(Chinese character used in Japanese wrtiting)"美" meaning beauty is consisted of two parts "大" meaning large and "羊" meaning sheap.In my work,I united the Queen of Grace with sheep which have been giving us lots.By doing so,I would like to express the attitude toward life "accepting all".

I am going to exhibit 9 works created in Shinano river,the longest river in Japan.
I walked all the way from the origin of this river to Japan sea where it ends, in total 367km.I carefully watched and discoverd many sceneries on the course in my own way and took the soil of the places. Then I turned them into landscape paintings by using the soil as a material.


"DARUMA"(Latest work!!)


Year 2013
Media FRP painted with an airbrush
Size 28×28×28cm

According to traditional legend,"Bodhi-dharma" meditated for such long periods of 9 years that he lost his hands and legs.This is why "Daruma",a Japanese doll modeled after "Bodhi-dharma" is armless and legless."Daruma" doll is a symbol of patience and effort.I painted social problems that modern soceity are facing on the surface of my "Darma" to look at them through art.
