Fumiya Odagawa

My work is triggered by events and impressions in my daily life. People passing by, the deep purple of a carpet, a row of tin toys... I extract the elements that attract me from these casual and random accumulations of memories, and draw them on the canvas. As a result, the outlines and colors of the motifs vaguely blend together, and the shapes, arrangements, and even the sense of perspective are transformed into the most beautiful ideal form of remembrance. These paintings bring out the nostalgia that everyone has, and even the memory and the painting are blended together to evoke a dream that should not exist. My paintings exist as a ticket to a world where sympathy and discomfort, and all kinds of undecidable events coexist.
