Koshiro Akiyama

In my art practice I create an idealistic landscape that reflects on a psychological condition that deals not only with utopian ideals but also morbidity. In the mind there is a constant shift between tension and relaxation, which weaves its intimate narratives and a sense of ambiguity into the work. Using a phenomenological and simple process I depict deeply private and intimate spaces, with a sense of compassion.
