Consciousness on the ground

     I set a canvas on the easel or on the wall to paint. I also paint the paintings setting a canvas on the floor. One day, while I was working on a painting on the ground, I had a moment of "what is the subject matter I am painting, a painting or myself?" The feeling that I felt was a different sense of reality from what I took for granted before. I decided to leave the painting on the floor to show to the viewer.

      With a canvas on the floor, I paint from all the directions as I walk around the canvas. There is no fixed top and bottom. The gravity does not exist in that sense. A painting becomes free from being an object and it becomes the consciousness on the ground.
