I imagine the place of my birth to be so beautiful that I might mistake it for the cosmic ocean. The place at which I finally arrive, where I return. I can no longer hear that song anymore, and I cannot even remember that beloved, nostalgic voice. One day, I shall deliver this soul to Nirvana. Together with the billowing midnight smoke, rising high into the sky.

Archetypus / 元型, 2020. Digital Media and Photo Collage, 120 x 96 cm - Masaki Hirokawa / 廣川政樹
Archetypus / 元型, July 2020. Digital Media and Photo Collage, 140 x 112 cm.

This artwork, titled "Archetypus," explores the theme of "Repetition and a Return to the Archetypal," featuring repeated duplications of a woman adorned with a bird mask, signifying humanity's inherent desires. The piece articulates the necessity of a logical structure underpinning art and civilization itself. In this narrative, logic serves merely as a restraint on the senses, propelling a perpetual cycle akin to reflections in facing mirrors, without an end, merely looping within a nested structure. This endless cycle could well represent the construction of human history, culture, warfare, and conflicts, extending to the cosmos itself.
