Middle days

My themes were gradually focused on woods, flowers and waters with clearer intentions than before. While I began to make challenges, by adding a new theme of buildings in Tokyo, to aim at more complex world, the themes of woods, flowers and waters remained fundamental subjects. In those days I came to realize my techniques of painting did not go well with oil paint colors. According to the advice by Mr. Ueda, the president of “Shibuya Uematsu”, I started to combine water acrylic paints with natural mineral pigments to produce delicate impression and to use “Art Resin” as a solvent.

A special event at the 7th floor in Mitsukoshi Department Store at Nihonbashi

In the autumn of 2009, after seeing “My hometown on my mind” carried in HP, a contact was made by a staff of NHK Public Welfare Organization who requested me to display my painting at the Heart Exhibition.

 Re NHK Heart Exhibition

This year I again joined the group exhibition I did in the previous year. As I had just finished the large work, I modified the previous ones a little, and sent them along with the new works. All the themes of new works are flowers.

Oct. 31, 2008 Niigata・NAMICS Techno Core

In 2006, Mr. Toshikazu Odajima, a chairman of NAMICS Corporation (renamed from Hokuriku paint) made a request of a painting to display at an entrance lobby of a newly built research institute (NAMICS Techno Core). The title was determined as “My hometown on my mind” (4x1.5m), which was finally delivered in 2008 after working for two years.

“Official Home Page, Governor of Niigata Pref. (Tilted “Umihiko, Yamahiko, Hirohiko”) from Niigata Prefectural Office Wishing Peaceful Paintings to Continue.
On July 6, Mr. Juzo Shiratori, a Niigata-City born painter, made a kind visit to the prefectural office. While he is now working at Tokyo, his solo exhibition was held in Niigata City Art Museum two years ago. He has realistic and delicate touch.  And his work such as landscapes and still life produce a calm atmosphere and heal a viewer’s mind. “Grove of village shrine”, presented by him today, has i mmediately reminded me of my dear childhood memories when I played until sunset. I sincerely hope he will continue to paint peaceful and moving works for many people and to encourage whole Niigata Prefecture.
