About Masa Iida

 
 
  • Biography
    I’m strongly influenced by the Buddhist saying, “Fine snow falling flake by flake. Each flake falls in its own proper place. Everything could and should rest in its own proper place.”

    For me “a fine snow flake” is a fine brushstroke; “A proper place” is the right place on the paper where a brushstroke was destined to be.  

    This is the reason why I don’t follow erasing and adding paint formula. Once I create a brush stroke trace I start from there.

    There is no way going back because I value each brush stroke trace which is a reproduction of each moment. I just simply add another brush stroke trace. There won't be erasing of paint.

    This method distinguishes me from other artists.

    A trace of brushstroke is created by an act of adding. On the contrary, non-painted empty blank space is done by a concept of subtracting. Focusing on these two elements is the crucial method of my work.

    I believe when my painting goes beyond adding and subtracting —when the balance between painted area and non-painted blank space has totally equal existence—creates a meditative state which viewers would be trapped in seeing nothing on paper…as expression and non expression co-existed.

    It’s like you can’t hear anything when you hear two sounds whose sound waves totally opposite to each other at the same time.

    I would like to achieve this goal.
