Japan: キノコの魔法 Magic Mushroom Part 2!

 

 

 

Here are the close ups from my previous blogs installation. The installation is still being exhibited at my university Kyoto Seika. The close ups show the human faces and forms that are infiltrating into the grassy landscape. The mushrooms with human form represent the fear of gaijin/ foreign culture invading Japan.

Japan: キノコの魔法 Magic Mushroom!

I have had a nice exhibition I’m half way through now at Kyoto Seika University. They have given me a space to exhibit my work; a recent installation of clay mushrooms painted pastel pink. In a previous blog I talked about what was behind the idea of mushrooms here

So here are some pictures taken at Seika:

This one was taken at night, it looks quite creepy because its unexpected.Image

 

I like the subtly to this installation, I watched a few reactions and there were a lot of double takes as the colour looks practically like it could just be flowers then it becomes clearer that the objects are man made in the shape of mushrooms then you start to notice the human features of some of the mushrooms. To be documented further soon! Thank you!

I started my exchange at Kyoto Seika University on the 8th of April. I have seen many wonderful things. I shall post some but it is more important to post my art. This will be coming soon! Expect a lot of mushrooms. Sorry for my lateness in posting!
