I’ve started a new painting. I was always trying to figure out something new to try, artistically. And so this circles series. Each circle painting measures 12" x 12".
WHY CIRCLES? The circle is a universal symbol everyone can relate to. Simple yet profound, it symbolizes wholeness, enlightenment, and the universe in all cultures. For us, the circle means connect, create, and celebrate.
When I work in this style, I create the circles spontaneously and decide on their placement in an entirely intuitive manner. I don't pre-plan anything. I then painted in various circles, one color at a time. For instance, first I painted in all the yellow shapes. Then all the orange shapes, then blue, green, etc.
I strive to create a balanced variety of circles and colors. The idea is that the different shapes and placement of colors will cause the viewer's eyes to bounce around the canvas. In this way I seek to create a sense of movement and energy in these funky artworks.
There is beauty in repetition.
For anyone who enjoys the sight of old-fashioned Japanese houses and the rich culture that flourished in the early 1900s, the Nezu residential district of central Tokyo is a wonderful place for a stroll. The joint Takehisa Yumeji and Yayoi Museums are located in two adjacent buildings in a side street near the Tokyo University. Takumi Kano, a Japanese lawyer, established the Yayoi museum in honor of the painter Takahata Kasho. Six years later, the Takehisa Yumeji Museum followed.
