Canvas panorama copy right(c)1999 Galerie Suiran

Produced in the period in which he utilized actual materials as motifs. On the bias of the canvas, apples are displayed: natural ones, both in the process of being peeled (passage of time), and after being peeled.*1 The small differences between the neatly lined up apples concentrates the passage of time. On the other hand, viewing from a distance, each apple becomes just a point in a line, an abstract pattern without a special theme. Having two faces of one motif, as a piece and as a group, is a characteristic of his work.

Comment from the artist:
I created this with particular enthusiasm because it was my one hundredth creation. To be accurate, I was creating several artworks at the same time and I knew this would be great, so I nominated it as the one hundredth. At that time, I was interested in paintings by Lee U Fan created with minimum work. The stretched, peeled skin of the apples is inspired by his "From the Line" series in which the lines are diluted.
