Tetsuya Ishida- Resigned to His Fate

.

Tetsuya Ishida, a young Japanese painter, exhumed imagery from deep within, merged it with the modern industrial world, and wedded the experience into an exhibition of a solitary sadness.  His surrealistic self-portraiture induces us to pause and empathize,  and perhaps examine our own existential separation, and yearn for a meaningful connection.

His works from 1999 examine this theme most poignantly, to embody the loss and express a muted frustration.

Tetsuya Ishida was hit by a train, and died, in 2005, and we wish him peace.
