By developing subject matter gained through the use of “interview” techniques, I have painted the “memory” of my friend. For this exhibition, taking the story of a pigeon loft belonging to an uncle of a friend who had passed away, I have shown two types of work; the first are paintings which took shape in the imagination after the interview, and the second are paintings based on images found by searching the internet and other sources after reducing the story to the keyword of “pigeon loft”. The images which expanded directly after hearing the story are the large-sized paintings. By clearly dividing the work in terms of those derived from small objects and the size of the work, it is possible to differentiate between these two methods.
