Painting | IWAMA Kazuma, OKAYASU Satomi
Venue：art space co-jin
art space co-jin is pleased to present ” Painting | IWAMA Kazuma, OKAYASU Satomi an exhibition featuring IWAMA Kazuma and OKAYASU Satomi.
Although the two artists are completely different in age, gender, painting style, and life history, they share a common strength of will in the way they approach painting. It is not a strength that is hard and therefore easily broken, but a strength that is flexible and soft. Through the expressions of IWAMA, who is still in the sixth grade but has absorbed the expressions of his predecessors with various interests and transformed them into his own expression, and OKAYASU, who has a physical disability but still paints with a confident touch, we hope this exhibition will provide an opportunity to reconsider the act of painting, which for some reason attracts us so much.

She takes paint from a palette onto a brush and paints on a canvas laid flat on her desk. At first glance, her touch may appear rough, but in reality, she paints after carefully observing the motifs, conveying the tension that arises between the limitation of her hands and her will to use her brush with precision. However, there is also a sense of enjoyment in painting, as seen in the way the background is painted, the way the colors are layered, and the playful silvery tones that
