“Artist's Notebook” is a series of still life paintings which depict notebooks that the artists used for writing down their ideas. The work is inspired also from “Boxes” series by Hanjiro Sakamoto. [...] The viewers cannot read inside of notebook no matter how enticing the notes may be. At the first sight, the viewers might feel an unkindness regarding this work, however it opens the door for everyone to the unlimited possibility of imagination.
