New Year's Holiday Numata Tsukimitsu Exhibition 1/7 (Thu)-1/13 (Wed) Divine Messengers' Day Off: Gekko Numata Exhibition
Artglorieux GALLERY OF TOKYO
Under the influence of the spatial composition of Japanese painting, animals are drawn lively on the screen.
In recent years, it has been inspired by sculptures and fusuma paintings at shrines and temples.
"How do the priests, who listen to human requests and wishes every day, sometimes spend a certain holiday?…"'
I put a story on the screen with such imagination.

In my works, whose spatial compositions have been influenced by the Japanese painting (Nihonga) genre, I strive to depict animals in vivid and lively ways.
In recent years, I have taken inspiration from the wood carvings, paintings on fusuma (sliding partitions/doors) and other types of art seen in Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples.
The various messengers of the gods work hard listening to people’s wishes and prayers, but I wanted to show how they spend their free time on days off.
This is what I thought about when creating the underlying narrative behind these pieces.
