GRAND PRIX

Statement

Gerbera, Sunflower & Rainbow Mam

I challenged myself to a new Realism employing photogrammetry. The realism I refer to here is the multiple perspectives such as in Cubism, and multiple timelines as seen in works such as that of Antonio López (1936), it is a way of expression that compresses the many layers into one picture. The process is as follows: prepare flowers in a flower pot, and photograph them regularly from different angles until they die. By using photogrammetry based on these photographs, an object with multiple perspectives and timelines is produced. In the end, this object is adjusted using 3D software (the object is not made to be completed at once.) This also functions as a motif for oil paintings.

Profile

Takunori Nakata

Born in Saitama, Japan in 1982. I completed my graduate studies at Tama Art University in 2014. By interposing digital technology with traditional painting, I explore new forms of expression.

Jury selection

“Seeing” is always a new experience but we see, at the same time, our memories that are summoned from within ourselves. Both of these are difficult to separate yet, in Nakata’s photographs, its “memories” seem to be a view of prediction from the future. His “REAL” seems to evoke a pleasant anxiety
