The Kanagawa Prefectural Art Exhibition, which started in 1965 and is celebrating its 56th anniversary this year, is one of the largest public exhibitions in Japan.
Unfortunately, it was canceled last year due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection, but this year it was held after taking all possible measures.
This art exhibition, which has a long history and a proven track record, attracted many wonderful works from all over the country this year as well.
This art exhibition has been highly acclaimed as a gateway to young artists, as many applicants have made great strides in winning prizes. There are 4 categories of open call for participants: 2D, crafts, calligraphy, and photography. This time, we interviewed four people who won the grand prize in each category.
I would like to convey the passion for the work and the passion for art that the award winners have enthusiastically talked about.

Grand Prize winning work
Title "Landscape from the side"

Congratulations on winning the grand prize. Please tell us your feelings now.
I was quite surprised. I was very happy and it gave me confidence in my work.

How did you choose to become an artist?
I like to move my hands. I feel fulfilled in the time it takes to put my thoughts into shape.

What made you decide to apply this time?
It's a work made up of simple modeling elements that are difficult to convey in photographs, such as surface treatment and placement balance, but I thought it would be easier to convey my work because I could see the actual work and judge it.

The concept and system of the workPlease tell us the feelings you put into the work.
As the title "Landscape from the side" suggests, I am conscious of the difference in how each surface looks when viewed from all angles. The ridgelines and overlapping images that I feel when I see the scenery are connected to the work.

Please tell us what you were most particular about and what you struggled with.
We are particular about bending the casters attached to the pedestal with the meaning of mobility and the aluminum plate so that the appearance changes depending on the angle.
The hard part was the L-shaped pedestal. In order to express the concept simply, it took a lot of time to apply a smooth surface treatment to the wood.

What kind of activities would you like to do in the future with this award? Please tell us your outlook and future goals.
I want to exhibit my work in various places!
For continuous production activities, we will first work on creating an environment.

Please give a message to everyone who wants to apply next year!
Please take good care of what you think is "good".
I am looking forward to seeing interesting works.

Grand Prize winning work
Title "OLLIE IN" (including wood grain, special printing)

Congratulations on winning the grand prize. Please tell us your feelings now.
I was very grateful and happy. It was a new way of expression for me, so it encouraged me to work on it in the future.

How did you choose to become an artist?
There are multiple motives, but I think it was because I wanted to convey the excitement and imagination I felt to someone.

What made you decide to apply this time?
I applied for it last time and received feedback from many people, so
I applied again this year. This is also because the size of the work is very large, the degree of freedom is high, and I strongly sympathize with the attitude of acceptance, which is unusual for an art exhibition.

Please tell us about the concept of your work and the thoughts you put into it during the production.
In the unprecedented situation of corona vortex, I wanted to turn this situation and experience into a positive one, and I used a skateboard as a motif that has a perspective on the section on how to overcome obstacles and how to make with those obstacles.
I feel that used clothing is a material that has spiritual elements such as memories and memories, so I asked an acquaintance to get used clothing that I can no longer wear from people who are actually skating, and that spirit I thought it would be great if you could feel the momentum, courage, and openness to make for people with disabilities in terms of sexuality and physicality.

Please tell us what you were most particular about and what you struggled with.
As with all works, we are always particular about carefully incorporating the used clothing we receive into our works. The hard part was collecting socks (laughs)
Socks, which are seen as consumables, are quickly thrown away if they are in poor condition.

What kind of activities would you like to do in the future with this award? Please tell us your outlook and future goals.
My work has a living object, and I cannot complete it by myself, and the composition of the work changes greatly depending on the time axis and relationships. Rather than making it alone, it is completed only with real cooperators.
Since my own motivation for production and the theme is proof of existence, this award will increase the connection with others, and I would be very happy if many people could cooperate!
In addition, the goal is to create a work with super endurance and strength, delusion that future generations will feel that such people existed after hundreds of years have passed.

The Kanagawa Prefectural Art Exhibition has a large size regulation, and you can generously accept what you want to express, such as being able to consult with your friends at the time of the exhibition, so I hope you will take on the challenge.

≪Book section≫ Mr. Daisuke Yamaguchi

Grand Prize winning work
Title "Mi Fu Ichibushi"theory)

Congratulations on winning the grand prize. Please tell us your feelings now.
I am very grateful and happy.
I am very grateful to my teacher for his guidance, my seniors on this road and my family who support me on a daily basis.

How did you choose to become an artist?
When I was a kid, I loved seeing the movement of the brush that the penmanship teacher wrote in front of me, and I remember desperately chasing the teacher's hands.
Rather than imitating a model, I enjoyed being able to reproduce that comfortable movement.
Of course, I couldn't get close to it even if I wrote it, but I learned that the expression of the book is infinite depending on the movement.
Looking back on it now, I think that this initial interest gave me an opportunity to enjoy expression, and I naturally went on this path.

What made you decide to apply this time?
Kanagawa, which is said to have a lot of calligraphy, has many aspiring calligraphers.
I myself wanted to exhibit at the historic Kanagawa Prefectural Art Exhibition and study.

Please tell us your thoughts on the production.
Corona's "time alone" was lonely, but thanks to the things that I could be absorbed in silently and the calligraphy that I was passionate about, I was able to enjoy the joy of production and reaffirm the joy of learning. It's fun to work for the ideal, and I've been holding my brush every day in anticipation of the bright future to come.

Please tell us what you were most particular about and what you struggled with.
I made it using the typeface of Qin Shi Huang era.
It's called Shoten, and I think you still have the opportunity to see it on your seal. There are restrictions on characters with strong regularity, but by changing the strength of the line and the speed of brush stroke,
Ideally, we should have both "suppression" and "liberation" personalities without difficulty.

lor: # 008080; "> What kind of activities do you want to do in the future with this award? Please tell us your outlook and future goals.
Currently, I am working for Daishi Kawasaki.
It has a long history, and its rituals and manners are still inherited.
Traditional culture, regardless of field, has a brilliant beauty that has refined one style for a long time.
In the same way as the way of calligraphy, I would like to cherish the foundation and make an effort to enter the rank.
Our future goal is to convey the appeal of handwriting to many people as a "town of calligraphy" in the town of Monzen, which is related to Kobo Daishi.

Please give a message to everyone who wants to apply next year!
Kanagawa has a colorful history and is connected to each region of the prefecture by culture and art.
We hope that through your work, the enjoyment of producing and appreciating will be shared with many people, and that the charm of art will lead to the future.

Grand Prize winning work
Title "Unnatural" 3-disc set

Congratulations on winning the grand prize. Please tell us your feelings now.
I was very happy. It also led to self-confidence.

How did you choose to become an artist?
When I was wondering what to study and get a job after graduating from university, I thought it might be a good idea to look at the works of the artist in the gallery and choose the artist's path. I followed the voice of my heart.

What made you decide to apply this time?
At first, I knew from the teacher for the first time during class, and I thought that I could exhibit my own work.

Please tell us about the concept of your work and the thoughts you put into it during the production.
I would like to explore the possibilities of photographic expression that combines digital technology and live-action photography. I tried a new expression by combining the images actually taken and digital technology. It deals with color elements and highlights the differences from real life. The concept is that when the everyday scenery suddenly changes, the viewer feels some kind of relationship between "my daily life" and "a sense of difference" and thinks about my life again.

I was most particular aboutPlease tell us the points and the points you struggled with.
As I studied, I began to think about the relationship between environmental changes such as innovation and thoughts and artistic expression, so I am particular about CG, 3D processing, and color processing for digital technology.
The most difficult thing for me is how to use 3D and CG software. It took a lot of time to study from scratch.

What kind of activities would you like to do in the future with this award? Please tell us your outlook and future goals.
I was really worried about whether to become a writer or find a job in the future. So, when I applied for this award, I was selected, and there was such a flow, and I felt that I was determined to continue my career as a writer.
I realized that I would like to continue making works. I want to be a writer who expands the range of activities from Asia to the world.

Please give a message to everyone who wants to apply next year!
Let's do it for the time being without thinking about it ~
