"From your own standpoint, relax and re-examine the long-pending problems."-KINJO


The “Eyes Shining in the Dark” series of works, which presented in an abstract style, are derived from KINJO’s childhood memories. When KINJO was a child, Grandparents often gave the artist some American or foreign goods that he had never seen before. These items impressed the artist. The "Eyes Shining in the Dark" series uses peculiar symbols and abstract concepts, through repetitive actions and colors on "drawing and covering" to reconcile each other. The skills make the image feel like shaking, as if memory is projected through the artwork. The series of works try to convey that everyone has a stage where they are quite concerned about the opinions from others. Yet when you try to face the viewpoints that you fear, you will find that you are not as fearful as you think. In the current era of tense environment, image pressure, and flood of public opinion, artists have also put forward a life philosophy such explosions information era: From your own standpoint, relax and re-examine the long-pending problems.
