There is something within Naoto’s work that stirs the soul. His artwork allows your to fall freely into its dimensions, experiencing a trip into other worlds and come face to face with a serenity that cannot be put into words. Genesis is no exception, and Naoto’s creatures far within this self-made cosmos provide allure and beauty as they rise from the darkness. With intricate patterns interwoven into their soft and tissue-like skin, we are put face to face not with realistic women but goddess-like manifestations; Using his well-known ‘stream-of-consciousness’ methods of creation, Naoto paints with feeling to see what is divulged from deep within – something that seems especially apt for this latest series.

“My vision is like a dream…I try to see what’s really going on in my mind, and that’s a practice to increase my awareness in stream-of-consciousness creativity. I try not to label or think about what is supposed to be, just take it in as it is and paint whatever I see in my mind with no compromise. That way, I create my own vision.”

Naoto’s intricate acrylic paintings on wood panels are being displayed within sumptuous black frames – and better yet, all are for sale. Genesis will be showing at Copro Gallery until Saturday, August 8, 2015.
