NEVER FULL - TABLEWARE
Never Full Series originated from the Amazon rainforest fire in the summer of 2019.
For 3 full weeks, no progress in rescue work, not even any support...
When the public saw the mention of the Amazon Fire, there was no association whatever with agriculture and the economy. There is a difference between reality and virtual world of media which are closely linked to economic, political, cultural and other factors.
‘GREED’ and ‘FOOD’ have connection in ancient literature.
Nowadays, people no longer have to worry about basic food and clothing needs.
Facing the promotion and benefits of import and export trade, should they reflect on the gradual expansion of desire?
There is also a dual meaning in the use of a negative type of soybean.
Patination and the broken shape show the colour of the fire and the state of burning.
This series is called ‘Never full’.
The surface of the vessel is full of holes and is unusable. It also means that people have no way to fulfil their inner desires.

I chose oil paintings from the Baroque and Rococo period as the background.
In the heyday of tea, a family that did’t have to worry about food had such tableware. It is in sharp contrast with the flamboyant home furnishings.
Combine tableware with oil painting through real ‘photoshop’.
(Hollow the size of the object on the canvas, and the tableware is embedded in it. )
