The Inherent “Individuals”-The first exhibition of W-CROW

“Untitled” oil on canvas 1200×1000


“Untitled” oil on canvas 1000×1000

Seven seconds of ‘expression’, an inherent ‘individual’.

The subject is not a person, but a ‘personality’. The two assume the personality of the person through conversation, adjust their feelings, and draw a painting with strokes from the mind and body.

Alone, the artist draws sensitive lines; the strokes of the two are improvisational.
The work, created by short but long, tension-filled strokes of seven seconds, reflects the deepest mental images of a moment cut out of time and space, forgetting philosophy and returning to nothingness.

Principles and Philosophy for the activities of Tarohei and Meg Nakagawa’s unit “W-CROW”.
Our two activities do not add up to four, but are always ZERO, always metabolizing, being honest about what we represent and refraining from it, not sticking to our activity history and not leaving it behind, always returning to nothing, not having a philosophy, everyday life is our activities.
