We are pleased to present the first exhibition of artist Taishi Hatayama after successfully completing his postgraduate study at Tama Art University Graduate School.His work is best described as being paintings of light within a truncated landscape. We find ourselves asking, whether on these canvases, there is an act of superimposition in his own production process on his experience in seeking light in an examination of the ocular fundus.In the exchange of developing thoughts on the surface of the canvas we discover a phenomenon that can’t be grasped by the eyes alone, and indeed when we face the painting there is a centripetal force drawing us into it.We hope you will enjoy this special exhibition where the movement of space in different vectors can be said to be a viewpoint intended from the painting and the gaze of its viewer.
