" Interior" / collage by T.Torao 40pages 2.900yen
Interior shows the 'basement' in the deepest recesses of my mind.
While in the silent basement, my mind becomes
But, at the same time, I feel anxious about an unknown world
which exists over the wall of the basement.
Trying to remember scenes of the basement,
each element of the scenes seem natural, but the elements are strangely combined.
It is a world which I try to grasp but is always out of reach.
It is a world which is so close, yet at the same time, so far away.
Collage is a good method for me to express
The physical elements of my collage are collected, cut, and scattered about before I use them.
Each individual element is a fragment of daily life, and each with its own reality.
But, when the elements come together, another bizarre world comes into existence.
This is my Interior .

elegant and still so immature with his emotions in turmoil,not knowing how it should end the memory of that happiness
extending over a period of time
a dream,he would never be able to record it in his journal
