◆ "Mokusaiga" which draws nature on the old tree Live painting is also held at the exhibition, where you can actually see the production process.

A wood painting by Tadao Sato for over 20 years.
Traces carved on old trees over the years, withstanding various natural environments, appear as a beautiful landscape that is rich in change.
It is a painting that directly depicts the scenery of the water and flora and fauna on the tree as if it were a sparkle or a stream of water.
It's an expression technique unique to Tadao Sato that makes you feel nature on the old tree, like an aquarium that expresses nature in the aquarium.
Tadao Sato's choice of wood as the material for the wood paintings is a rare item with very beautiful grain, such as Yakusugi and Tochi, on which animals and plants are depicted with overwhelming descriptive power.
And when harmonized with the scenery of trees, a completely new world of beauty emerges.
