Contemporary art is difficult. I often see that kind of discourse, and I think it is difficult too. But I think it's a bit unfair to say that. I think it implies that they don't understand contemporary art, but they do understand other art.
I don't understand impressionism, fauvism, cubism, etc., which emerged before contemporary art, and I don't understand so-called traditional paintings either. The most I can think of is that they are beautiful or cool. Even when I visit the Ohara Museum of Art in Kurashiki and see El Greco's work, I think they look like cartoons, and when I see swirls of dazzling yellow painted on thickly, I think they look like Van Gogh's works.
That's why I came to a contemporary art museum in Jingumae, Tokyo. The Watari-um Art Museum. On this day, there was an exhibition of an artist named Umetsu Yoichi. As I looked around, I felt as if I was being told something in a low voice, but I still couldn't understand what it was saying to me.
