Irish artist David Franklin’s paintings are concerned with the tensions between individuals and their surroundings, focusing on the intangible experiences of the subconscious. During his six-month residency at Youkobo, he has been increasingly preoccupied with physical locations in an exploration of haikyo, or abandoned buildings, which offer an intriguing alternative view of Tokyo.

David Franklin(デービッド・フランクリン/アイルランド)の絵画は、人と人の関係や人と場に存在する緊張感をテーマにし、把握できない無意識の体験に 焦点を当てている。遊工房での六ヶ月の滞在中、廃墟という物理的空間をくり返し探索することで、特有な視点で捉えた東京を作品にした。
