The Dots and the Boundary between the Ordinary and the Extraordinary
Mizuki Akane creates worlds of “fantasy in the ordinary”.
Her works frame a moment, a snapshot of the time and space when the two apparently conflicting worlds meet. The dots she uses to present these moments are like the air and other matter that drift around in space – constantly fluid, never stationary. Expressing changeability and delicacy, they disappear the moment you take your eyes away, like a dissipating mist. Unreal, but just perhaps. They invite you to enter a world of ambiguity and transience.
Animals set on a pure white background are free to express “life” in their silent worlds. But their eyes always seem somewhat lonely and empty. Those eyes reach out to convey the thoughts of the artist herself to us living in a world that is changing at astonishing speed. Sometimes, it is “a scream” or “a wish”. At other times, it is “salvation” or “hope”.
Irrationality and sacrifice continue to be present even in a time when humans can live well. These fragments are picked up by Akane to create worlds on white paper.
