Mana Hiraki inspires atelier ST, CAT
Sep 19, 2017  # Art


Mana Hiraki inspires us.


Calm tenderness means strong atmosphere in her paintings.
In her world colored with fluid and vague touch, gentleness and vividness exist at same time.


She talks about the origins of inspiration as below.
“I visualize abstract things such as border, affection and mood.
A rice bowl using everyday, a sweater given from someone special, a flower grown from a seed, a round stone found in the sea, a pink shell without lacking,
a bedroom with your own smell, a town you were born…


Everyone feels attachment to something and they are increasing in their life.
We can not stop to feel attachment to stuffs.


For example, victims dispossessed of their hometown can not leave there easily.
I visit to Fukushima 5 years after the earthquake and talked to people living in their temporary housing.
They were not lived, they lived.
They felt attachment to the land where they were born and raised even after the disaster attacked.


I like vintages.
Someone’s memory. Someone’s life.
I can feel her/his sign and life from the stains on it.
In my works, I want to include that kind of mood made with hands naturally so just vintages can hold.


Attachment in everyone make their energy to live more strong.


I want to create like singing a gentle song to loneliness in the fog.


And I always inspired by Anselm Kiefer.”

Yuta Nishiura inspires atelier ST, CAT
Aug 21, 2017  # Art

Yuta Nishiura inspires us.

His sculptures are telling the tales to us.

In front of the works, we fall into the feeling that we see them through the consciousness not just eyes.

Each piece sinks in our inner part widely and deeply and take us to the world of subconsciousness where the concept of time doesn’t exist.

There are mysteries with his sculptures.

He talks about the origins of inspiration as below.
“When I take a moment focusing on things I do and feel in my daily life, I sometimes discover something out of place or wonders, which can turn into the seeds expanding my imaginary landscapes. The various landscapes collected in everyday life become important settings and stories on my creation. It was a Makonde teacher who taught me fascinations and initiation of wood sculptures while I stayed in Tanzania. As if he was turing the pages of an illustrated book, he chiseled a wood block and told me simultaneously a story regarding the work piece in front of us. His attitude towards his art works has been always my ideal. Walking through the landscapes of my collections and creating a visible art work with a piece out of them.”

Takahiro Murahashi inspires us.

His collage works make us to think back to the memories, but also we are surprised by the balance that is very contemporary and never seen.

The composition he creates include an amusing boldness and sensitivity somehow.

The expression makes us feel unfamiliar and familiar at same time.

He talks about the inspiration to us.
“I’m inspired by ‘a lump of materials’.
a mass of plaster, soil, rock, tree or metal and combinations of different kinds.
sculptures decaying and being abstract.
Shadows made by surface roughness and decorations.”

When we saw her works ate first time, some feelings that we can’t express in words came to our minds.

These were colored in vague, sad, sorrowful and nostalgic.

We think the feelings are more primitive. These were something before words and shapes.

Zhong Xian inspires atelier ST, CAT

Zhong Xian inspires us.

Her magical animation “EAR” is very addicting…

We quote her words here.
“EAR” is a small animation describe my inner during the period of 2016-2017. For human sensorium, I think ears are the subtlest one to shape, to abstract and emoted everything, every memories become abstract and even rational pictures through the annotation of ear.
Some inspiration like the circles, lines and cubes are from Seiko’s earring’s design, storyline and sound are from my daily experience. Story meaning basically like a three-storey stair, one is leave for annotation, another portray my memories, and the last one is a message, I leave for a specific person.

Zhong Xian(@t_ipy) is an artist based in Taipei. She was born in 1994.
