Shisei Hashimura's Art Works
SHISEI HASHIMURA'S ART WORKS

CONCEPT

I receive inspirations from music (particularly rock music) , movies and novels which of these make me play in different dimension when I create my own art work. Also I love to check various kinds of magazines ( if I have money, I want to subscribe every magazine which is published now, like John Waters does!) when I paint, I use my favorite commercial images with my own image in my mind. Luckily Tokyo area where I live and work is one of the easiest cities to get magazines,CDs, books, dvds, videos and watch movies from all over the world. Nowadays people in cities in the world have to live with massive amounts of information. My work is a mixture of such information whirlpool from external environment and my own inner world, like dreams.

NAME CARD ART PROJECT: but days go on after 9.11
Art Space/LIFE=PASSAGE, A Passage of O gallery , Tokyo 2002


This is 1 month, 1 artist project: the gallerist of O Gallery (Megumi Ohto) holds name card size art works which of these are carried in name card holders whenever she goes anywhere and shows these works to anybody outside the gallery ( when she stays in the gallery, these works stay there, too.) I made six pieces painted by acrylic on small name card size canvases: eyes, ears, a norse and a mouth which of these contain images about war .

Lunatic Silence
Selected by 6th Annual Syowa Shell Oil Co. presents Contemporary Art Award Exhibition
2001
Acrylic, Cray-pas,& Color copies on CANVAS
43" by 35"

This painting is about Bjork in pink dress who has been my idle is dancing around a swimming pool. Actually I dreamed this image about 5 years ago. Then my friends told me that he saw her in pink dress besides New York University's sports center in real life. Lately I saw her in similar pink dress in magazines as a leading actress of Lars von Trier's film " Dancer in the Dark" which won this year's Cannes Palme d'Or and earned her the festival's Best Female Performance award.

PARADIS OF RABBITS
Collection of Toray Daw Corning Co. LTD. , Osaka Branch
2000
Acrylic, Cray-pas & Color copies on CANVAS
20"by 30"

I made a work titled "Paradis of Rabbits" as a commission work for a Japanese company. This title means a nickname of Charles de Gaulle air port in Paris. ( There are many rabbits in the airport and often they are killed at runaway!) I painted a mother and a child are watching airplane from the airport and I put some lyrics from Underworld ( Techno unit from German) on the air. The lyric is about fighting snake in Thailand. Right after I supplied the painting to the company, a concord was crashed at Charles de Gaulle. That was a bit scarily.

DINNER WITH S. KUBRIC 2
2000 "1980-1999 MEMORIAL ART", Shibuya Parco, Tokyo
Acrylic, Cray-pas , Stickers & Color copies on CANVAS
28.7" by 28"

I received an inspiration from a line of his reminiscences ( he passed away last year.)written by a woman who use to be his maid. When I was half dreaming in the early morning, this book was introduced by radio and the DJ said he always shared his dishes with large numbers of his cats. When I woke up, I thought it was my dream because I have been painting people in a dark dinning room and eat meals wildly. Certainly the image of kubric was coincide with my inner image.
