I want to end by just describing the beauty of this. Frankly, I would like to keep silent without speaking any words. Words are too inconvenient and unsophisticated to convey everything happening there. The desire just to stand still wells up. His artworks frequently have elements of this kind, however, this one named "MOSSY HILL" has beauty as well as the strength to become independent by itself, even though it is his creation. Why should we need words?
"MOSSY HILL (What a fucking wonderful world)" is a collaboration with a musician, YUZU, and was used for the artwork of the album, "Wonderful World" (April 2008). Many kinds of mosses are glued onto tree-shaped FRPs. It is surprising that two frogs which were brought there seem happy to live there without running away, and even sleep contentedly. Each living creature has an appropriate size: we human beings are much larger than ants, but at the same time, much smaller than elephants. It may seem irrelevant here, but it is said that excellent Chinese-style landscape paintings include features such as human characters to invite viewers into their world. I felt the urge to enter the world by turning into a frog. The world here is too small for me but is suitable for a frog.
