‎”The Future Is Always Bright (Study #2) (2010)”: Tomokazu Matsuyama is a multimedia artist who has spent his life in both Japan and the US, a division which has distinctly factored into the style and content of his work. Matsuyama paints the space “between worlds — they are not completely blended, but instead still a patchwork of a controlled chaos trying to evolve into something close to cosmopolitan, yet not so idealized” (artist’s statement). His images are vibrantly playful – white splatters of falling snow, paint-streaked horses, plaid pants, joyous movement. See more at his website: http://www.matzu.net/
