Flowers of a Foreign Land 30S (91 x 91 cm) by Takemi Murokoshi


This oil painting combines a variety of shapes and colors into a harmonious abstract composition.

The screen uses multiple textures and materials, each of which visually conveys a different feel.The outline of the white face in the center is made up of multiple lines and shapes.

The entire painting is dotted with vibrant red, blue, and orange colors, and the bottom right features a distinctive blue swirl pattern. These colors and shapes create an exotic and mysterious atmosphere, while also carrying a certain narrative and symbolism.
