View of Sekiya Village and the Uchi River near Suijin Forest portrays scenes of everyday life taking place among the river, mountain, and forest. In my painting, the unusual juxtaposition of a flower vase, screen opening, and downtown scene encourages viewers to reconsider the experience of everyday life with a new perspective on familiar sights and spaces—something I have sought to create through each of the paintings in this exhibition.

What we see changes based on our viewpoint. I love the shift in perspective that occurs as the vase with flowers on the left is brought into the foreground and while the buildings down the street recede into the distance. The framing of the image turns the street scene into a pictorial element, unsettling our sense of everyday life and, perhaps, revealing new facets of familiar images and experiences.
