Phases of the Pin
This painting, begun in 2003 and not completed until 2009, suggests a maturation of my iconography for transience and time’s passage. Each panel, from right to left like a Chinese scroll painting, depicts a 3 hour period beginning just before dawn. Like the phases of the moon, the bowling pin denoting the bowling alley on the far right displays moving shadows of the sun’s journey. Two concrete-lined rivers converge here at the edge of Fujisawa-city’s downtown area, the Sakai and Kashiwa. Land and water are separated; the character of the rivers change with the time of day, while the character of the land seems to remain the same. I like the jumping loach-fish (bora) on the far left, and the pigeons (hato) on the water-pipe in the foreground.
