No one notices, however, it surely exists
Koichi Hasegawa works as a plant engineer at a chemical factory, and continues to create ideas with the complex entanglement of plant piping that repeats growth as if they became alive and turned to the structure of society, the lives of people, and even to the universe.
The suspicious light of the metal, made up of light and shadow, creates a strong viewpoint effect that overlaps the image of the human body, insects, and the life forms of the road, and stops the viewer. It can be a world that can be drawn because it is a plant engineer who actually knows the field.
Since 2003, he has been involved in the painting exhibition in earnest, and has been energetically presenting works every year while receiving numerous awards, including the 19th Shigeru Aoki Memorial Biennale. While focusing on masterpieces, expressions that focus on details, even on small items, have the power to overwhelm what you see and feel the same reality as masterpieces.
