Scattered flower


I drew scattered flower for three consecutive years from 2011.The work on the left was drawn before the Great East Japan earthquake, so, I do not remember why I chose to draw scattered flowers, without impact of the disaster.

A dead lily hung down on a dark background and withered petals float on the floor. This composition depressed me after the disaster.

In the following year, I drew another scattered flower with the image of them rising to heaven, intending to find hope. A year later, I drew the withered sunflower and the sun.

I still draw scattered flowers every year. Why? Maybe because the reconstruction is still unfinished.
