Tonegawa Travelogue at Dusk 30F (90.9 x 72.7cm) Written by Teruo Yamakawa


This painting is a work that incorporates the impressions and emotions I receive from the Tone River.

Flowers, geometric shapes and patterns never seen before spread out, blurring the lines between reality and dreams. The strangely shaped flowers appear to be swaying with the swells of the river. The warm colors and soft curves will evoke the emotion of sunset, and will resonate with your own thoughts.

This is a playful and attractive work.
