Description

This book is self-directed/published as part of the artist’s project, “eyes of a child,” which is to investigate creativity of children and aesthetics of their artwork as an art teacher/artist by creating reproductions of works produced by children tracing the process of their art making in order to understand and clarify the drawing style of each student as well as the feelings that he or she intended to express (from the eyes of a child), and then by drawing portraits of each student (into the eyes of a child). The project was developed over five years of teaching elementary school art classes at La Citadelle International Academy of Arts and Science in Toronto.

Eighty-eight colour pages in English and Japanese featuring a simultaneous showing of oil and pencil portraits of students and reproductions of works produced by these students during the class, as well as text by Goro Suzuki, professor emeritus at Atomi University, Japan, dialogue with Atsuko Harada, who was the artist’s grade one homeroom teacher and ex-principal of Nagae Public Elementary School, and dialogue with third graders who were the students of the artist.

The book is designed by Japanese package designer Akiyo Kamijyo and Canadian graphic designer Robert Moreau (York University Visual Arts programme graduate) to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Japan Canada diplomatic relations.

“eyes of a child” project has been exhibited in various venues around the globe, including Pouch Cove Foundation, Newfoundland, Canada (2008), Christopher Cutts Gallery, Toronto, Canada (2006), Wagner Collage Art Gallery, New York, U.S.A. (2005), Galeria Punto Kurashiki, Okayama Prefecture, Japan (2005), Kyoto Art Center, Kyoto, Japan (2005), Kitakyushu Municipal Museum of Art Annex, Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan (2005), Prince Takamado Gallery at the Canadian Embassy, Tokyo, Japan (2004).
