Kikanetsu : The Art of DaisukeRichard
The world of expressionless girls on the verge of adulthood living in rooms where reality and fantasy blend
The distinctive factor in His work is high school girls in languid poses that arise from the uncertainty that is peculiar to girls during adolescence. Girls in his work show expressionless faces and the artist intentionally makes it hard to gauge their emotions. But the way that the artist presents the subject - depicting the uncertainty felt in adolescence, while at the same time celebrating these youths through pale shades of color and unique composition - is definitely something that resonates with teenage girls. Pale colors give an impression of the fragility and sweetness of young girls, while each work's unique composition shows the girls dwelling alone in between the two incompatible worlds of adulthood and childhood.
