Three-dimensional dimensions -Paintings by Takayuki Sekine-
This installation artwork is inspired by the dimensions of the paintings of Takayuki Sekine, which were exhibited in the same space at the exhibition. I regarded the paintings, which are usually considered as two dimensional, to be three dimensional objects.
Canvas sizes used in Japan are standardized by the alphabet F, P, M, S, and numbers. Each alphabet represents the appropriate ratio for the motif to be painted: Figure, Paysage, Marine, and Square. The larger the number, the larger the size.
As I mainly create three-dimensional works, this kind of idea of standard size is unfamiliar to me, but at the same time, I actually found it quite interesting. I created a series of artworks that focused on the canvas, which is usually not seen with awareness even though it is an important element of paintings.
