Morose Paintings of Tetsuya Ishida
The characters in his paintings appear to be distressed and sulky, and in a few of them their bodies are in pieces and part of a machine.
If you take a look at his work, you will get a feeling that its trying to convey a much deeper meaning, at least thats how I felt, so I thought of blogging about it.
Ishida died at the age of 31 after being hit by a train, which some believe was a suicide. That’s easy to believe on seeing the depressed expressions in his paintings.
Would this be heights of modernisation? There are ways of intepreting a painting, depends on your imagination. This one I feel connotes huamns being trapped in the concrete jungle.
This image looks like the body parts are going to be assembled, maybe of a mannequin. I found this one to be very interesting, the way I see it, we should protect our environment and marine life.
Ishida left behind about 180 works created during his 10-year art career. They are quite interesting.
