Avant Garde Exhibition - Virtual Artists - Masaki Hirokawa / 廣川政樹
I exhibited 5 artworks at the Avant Garde exhibition held at VR, hosted by Virtual Artists, based in London, England.

You can find more information about the exhibition on Virtual Artists' official website, Instagram, and Facebook page.

Currently, artwork cannot be transported from Japan to Europe through Russia and must be rerouted around the south, making air transportation difficult.

Behind every military invasion is an information war and ruthless investment, and while the raison d'etre of network infrastructure can be good or bad depending on its use, there is still a silver lining in the use of technology for the purpose of augmenting reality and communicating culture.

Archetypus / 元型 by Masaki Hirokawa / 廣川政樹
Archetypus / 元型
Jul 2020 / 175 × 140 cm

The work replicates a woman wearing a bird mask to convey the theme, "repetition and a return to archetypes," capturing the essence of humans living in society. Humans form orderly societies, as controlling chaos using law and order is a prerequisite for human civilization. The work depicts how the coexistence of chaos and order creates repetitions like those found in opposing mirrors. The mask represents a sociable personality and shows how human coexistence results in endless repetitions like those found in opposing mirrors.

Before we are born into this world, all of our lives are determined by our soul's life path. Every being is an incarnation of God, a separate Spirit, and all life is equal. In truth, we are omniscient beings. But we have to live by the rules of this 3D world for the sake of our soul practice. If you are faced with a challenge, remember this, you are precious and irreplaceable.

Bodhisattvas of the Earth / 地涌の手 by Masaki Hirokawa / 廣川政樹

When the world entered the Corona disaster, all sorts of sad thoughts poured in from all over the city. Ladles disappeared from shrines and supermarket shelves were emptied. The world was about to be reborn. I kept thinking about what role art could play in such a world, and I mindlessly projected the thoughts I received from the swell of the world into my work, as if filtering them. The last thing that remained was "prayer.

Forgotten Sky / 忘却の眺め by Masaki Hirokawa / 廣川政樹
Forgotten Sky / 忘却の眺め

Today's children can only read the emotions of others through a mask. They try to communicate based on what they feel when they look into the eyes of the other person, and the feeling that comes from the other person's entire body. This work was created with the hope that we will soon be able to see the smiling faces of children under a blue sky, knowing that the blue sky is probably already a memory.

Uriel / 静謐な世界 by Masaki Hirokawa / 廣川政樹
Uriel / 静謐な世界
May 2020 / 91 x 132 cm

This work was created as a prayer for a world of tranquility to come to people. The world is about to be reborn, changing its shape drastically, and in this violent swell, various cultures, commerce, distribution, and many irreplaceable lives have been lost. What we can feel from this work is sorrow, prayer, compassion, and hope.
