Ryosuke Hara portrays nature and people, exploring how humans can coexist with nature in works visualizing this sense of distance from nature. He received the 2001 Tokyo Wonder Wall Grand Prize in 2001 and has held several exhibitions. Kota Hirakawa, meanwhile, has attracted attention with works depicting lost memories of history in black paint. His work has been exhibited in shows such as Catastrophe and the Power of Art at Roppongi Art Museum and “1940s Foujita Tribute at The University Art Museum, Tokyo University of the Arts. Other series of his include “I Came From Somewhere, I Will Go Somewhere” and “Forest Tea Ceremony” questioning the issues we face through intersections with nature. Their works here featuring motifs of mountains and forests are entry points for thinking about contemporary society.
