Vision and Existence

The artwork “Vision” series of Kunio Abe is like the scenery as if looking through a microscope appears on the canvas. Elementary particle which is the minimum unit constituting the substance, as to form the shape of everything gathered them, what we have usually eyes, or what convinced that is visible was limited in how superficial he asks. Continuous reticulated world as elastic waves looks like cells constituting the organism. Also the black line and object that appear in there seem to represent the whereabouts of the signal of the intention and feelings of organisms. Gravitational wave is called a phenomenon that travels at the speed of light as a wave by the time variation of the distortion of space-time that happened in the universe. If an organism is likened to a universe, intention and feelings that daily occur in a variety of causes emitted become a wave as the gravity wave. The “Vision” series portrays such as the "truth of the universe" and "origin of organisms " and the deep in the back of the more light and shadow. “Existence” series is contrasting works of Vision series. The principal theme in these both series are same. Abe expresses circulation of positivity and negativity, or nothingness and ens(exist) throughout his creation.
