HirokiKAKINUMA




A Godzilla-like baby monster at the top of the iron tower is roaring. At the bottom of the tower, another one is looking up and roaring. The artist drew this employing a special effect, wondering what it would be like if we could eliminate problems caused by nuclear power plants by reviving Godzilla born from a hydrogen-bomb. However this is not the artist’s personal conviction, but just a small thought that it may be nice if this kind of thing happens. Love is given to contradictions arising from it, special effects, and incidents that occurred at the tower.

Two giant fighting cocks descend on a housing complex similar to the one where the artist grew up, as a motif. This housing complex, a tiny piece of Tokyo that he knows and no longer exists, is far different from the glamorous Tokyo that everybody has in their minds. This is his first attempt at a “Tokyo Complex” (what the artist wants to call it) series to reflect the sad reality and a sense of loss of his home.

This painting express "Phoenix descended to the earth for genetic modification"
The figure " OOO" which are juxtapose right and left sides of painting are designed to represent the genetic structure of organism. There is also a similar genetic figure in the center of the painting. It is changing from the ordered structure of DNA to strange, because the descent of a phoenix cause genetic recombination
A legendary immortal bird, Phoenix is able to space and time warps. And it exists for changing the future of creature’s life. The tail of the Phoenix in this painting represents space compression such as the black hole
