Tokuro Sakamoto1975-

Sceneries he dipicts are not taken from the real, and we may feel that they are somehow floating from the real. Strangely enough, however, the seneries at the same time makes us feel that we already saw them somewhere, sometime. He depicts with acrylic paints sky, mountains, roads, wires, traffic lights, and playground equipments without representing mankind, leaving us non-existence. He has several series as repertory such as map series, night view or water surface, some of which remind us of wood prints of Edo period. The artist questions if he represents "nothing" while he draws these landscape. He seems to try to draw nearer by depicting the background of the object rather than depicting the object itself.
