Junta Egawa, I imagine your past. 116.7x116.7cm 2013
eitoeiko is pleased to announce the solo exhibition ‘No time to choose. Can’t look behind. I stare at my right fist.’ by Junta Egawa.
It is the same for Egawa to express something by sand on a griddle and to make painting with oil colors. Even a smooth way of walking into a crowd of train station, the artist thinks that it is as same as how to paint a good one.
Putting oil colors on white canvas and scraping them off, or connecting to the others adjacent, Egawa made a view from his memory of the day. He considers that painting is recording. The title of the exhibition reminds us his action of making painting. Fresh colors are important for him, because it is related to memory reviving vividly. It is reflected widely from his personal society to larger world. Regardless of consciousness and unconsciousness, it appears in the image. The artist attempts to make a monument from an everyday trifling occurrence. In other words, Egawa aims to change a day to a special thing.
