Naohiro Maeda

Naohiro Maeda's statement

My work is an exploration of the mourning process.  The empty spaces I depict are my fantasies of comfort and solace. These are not real places but constructed places.
Two years ago my close friend passed away and I moved to the United States. These two strong experiences happened sequentially and created  a disconnection I have never felt before.
The weather and time of day in my work reflect my transition from sadness to calmness to lightness.
