“Rain Painting” is a series of works which records raindrops - from fine foggy rain to violent showers, every rain has its own character.

 

In order to fix the rain’s liquid ephemeral image, the artist created an elaborate process: place the canvas under the rain for a short moment, bring it inside and, with great care, wipe off each raindrop one-by-one. Nothing is added nor changed. The idea arose with the familiar sight of spots on the street when the rain begins to fall.Therefore, it is the rain that draws the picture! In this way, the artist keeps close collaboration with Nature. Sakata started using this method of “Environmental Art’ when working in the forest and the fields etc.

The most significant intervention is the choice of the color. Thereby the image of the raindrops falling on the Earth looks like a sky full of stars! Thus, these small square blue canvases are no less than an open window, through which is perceived the splendor of the cosmos!

EIZO SAKATA

Eizo Sakata (Aichi, Japan, 1954) is a painter and performance artist who lives and works in Paris. Originally a student of mathematical engineering at the University of Tokyo, Sakata committed to his childhood love of painting in 1983, moving to France to explore his passion. His art has evolved from his initial style of personally expressive painting; he now seeks to incorporate nature, the environment, and people in an approach he calls "Active Passivity". Water also runs thematically throughout Sakata's paintings, as evidenced literally by his use of seawater and Chinese ink. His works have been shown at Galerie 89, Paris, France, (2014); L-Gallery, Nagoya, Japan (2007, 2012); Galerie Art Base, Brussels (2006).
