Artist's Description

The literal meaning of Ki So Ten Gai is an unusual idea falls down from the sky. The english equivalent meaning could be translated to a most unexpected idea, out of the ordinary.

I used this title for a series of artworks I did during the year 2005 through the year 2006. The title was inspired by the trees. I’m fascinated by them. I did a lot of photos with trees as subject in that period and my eyes were constantly directed toward the sky to find a good shot. That seems to me a religious or somewhat mystical behavior. It was like I was waiting for inspiration to come from outside of myself.

The title was inspiring for further artworks in the series depicting flowers. I put the subjects at the bottom of the vertical canvas leaving empty spaces at the top. Some flowers are even pointing upwards as if they were intimately tied to some mysterious force.

I had found kanji symbols representing this concept and I discretely placed it on my artworks, anyway I recently removed them from a certain number of images, to achieve a clean and cluttered free result. In addition the absence of kanji fits better with cards!
