Shiki (Four Demons)


The theme for this exhibition was ‘the four season of Japan,. In Japanese, four seasons is pronounced, ‘shiki’ so I used a play on words and depicted ‘four demons’, which is also pronounced ‘shiki’.
They are as follows: spring—spirit of the cherry tree, summer—mermaid, autumn—fox demon, and winter—snow woman. Japan is a country where the divisions between the four seasons are clearly delineated, and people enjoy the various features of each one. If you are able to catch even a vague feeling of the colors of the year from this work, I will be very happy.
