Law and Order / His

Kariya Hiroshi says that the code is in “the index to point what is the illusion and the index to point what is the reality”.

This world is a twisting the reality and art is trying to bring you back to awareness to differ the illusion from the reality. The code is not out it is inside you.

Kariya does this through his art, thriving “for the audience to experience, contemplate: to visualize the physical image within their timeless, dimension-less, space-less, matter-less, but within the state of endless being”.

“Visualization is the key, landscape of life”, - says Kariya, “Landscape of making, landscape of creation or fabrication, documentation of direct making, rather represents the figures.

My work is not to portray a subject, but to evoke.”

However, it is all connected, my dear friends...”The Is Now”.

That is why his mission and the main idea of his art - is “It is all about this physical world, including words, symbols, image, and thoughts. Illusion is what we believe 100 percent, not 99.9999999...%, as what our reality is all about to create or fabricate.

Reality is what we believe 100 percent, not 99.999999...% in this physical world.”

Artists are from this world, do not worry, but they know and see something you’ve forgotten. And the next time you will see a piece of art that is not so simple, be happy to meet the new level of awareness. Remember that art is to see the reflection of your own God in that mirror, made by an artist.

Do not ask the artist to explain, cause your own God is waiting for you, not for information.

And, anyway, one should know only that “It is about the One Piece and Millions of Others”...

Law and order / His


The intention for my work this time around, was to establish a distinctive law and order, and product of recording the matters related the whole creation.

The illusions and meanings that contradict and adhere on the surface relates to the a priori of viewers’ law and order.

The artwork is a document of my act relating to creation or fabrication and whole story is written or programmed under my law and order, with specific guide lines, directions, numbers, erasing marks, re-writings, mistakes, and where all traces left are hidden behind the layers of many surfaces.

The surface that the audience sees is not what I have created, but something that pertains to a priori; relating to or derived by reasoning from self-evident propositions.

However, it is also possible that what you see in the work may be an artist’s accidental drippings on the plate or canvas.

Generally, from a distance, the characteristic of all images connects with the flow of energy, transparency, and reflection. Upon closer view, you may notice the details beyond the layered surfaces, and the flipped images. All pieces are fragmented, assembled, and connected. All pieces are relative to each other, guided by others, move in the same manner, and hold secret or hidden meanings.

“What’s all this? Is it the seeds speaking?” The key might be in the writings, numbers, faces, seeds, or maybe in the question itself...

The work seems to make you ponder and evoke such questions.

Typically, an artwork is dependent on artist’s hand, through his passage to marking the work while under his law and order. The artwork is not to portray a subject, but to evoke. 

You may think you have found a mistake, but I don’t make mistakes; just joyful little calligraphic coincidental-drippings.
