It is a work of the time when Ichita Tanaka was concerned to the existence of objects. This is the combination of the rope that his grandfather made and a horn of a deer that he found in a rice field of his hometown. Ichita Tanaka thought that it might be possible to make the rope and horn to stand out by excluding extra things which created this simple configuration. When he created this work, he thought that the only way to draw realism work was to stare at the subject for a long time like a priest, which became one of the best to represent his past.

This work is created by putting washi paper on the panel and polishing it with a file to paint. The approximate amount of time took was about 3 months.

Artist Information

Ichita Tanaka

 Ichita Tanaka is a Japanese Realism painter. Realism paintings look very similar to each other in terms of formalism as they attempt to transfer reality onto canvas. Tanaka is not pursuing existentialism or vitality which photography does not have but realist painters often tend to do. His paintings bring out curiosity and imagination from the viewers by creating a sense of distance between his work and the viewers using the techniques and characteristics of Realist paintings.
