後藤 拓朗(ごとう たくろう)



Takuro Goto


Born in Yamagata city, Yamagata Prefecture in 1982. 
Having graduated with a bachelor's degree in Western painting, Art Department, Tohoku University of Art and Design.
I make an oil painting depicting the landscape of abandoned village or mountain forest in Yamagata Prefecture and the physical activity performed there.
In landscape painting, I paint a picture of an abandoned village and abandoned house as a symbolic representation of the decline of Japan and a local area that is inevitably forced to change by political policy.
On the other hand, I paint a picture of a Man who pose like ancient Greek sculptures and fashion models in abandoned villages and mountain forests.
It depicts the front-line situation where a modern Japanese who imitates the West, but has a body far from Westerners, has eroded and recaptured the territory from the natural world once under control.
Through this work, I explore today’s landscape painting of hometowns should be. Not nostalgia, exoticism or utopia.
