    DMOARTS is pleased to present "ON THE WAY BACK HOME," Haruka Kanzaki's second solo exhibition at DMOARTS, following last year.
    Kanzaki is a designer / illustrator based in Tokyo.
    The rhythm of the sharpness and blotting of the ink is pleasantly rhythmic, and the artist draws up a fresh and light depiction of the mundane.
    Last year, he participated in the art book "digmeout 07" and has been involved in various commissioned works.

    The works expressed in this exhibition are based on stories that came to the artist's own mind.
    It's like something you've seen before for everyone, or seen on your travels.
    For some, it is on the way to somewhere, and for others, on the way home.
    We hope you will enjoy the stories that fold over and over in the days that follow.

    [Artist Statement]
    It is a Saturday morning at the beginning of April. Another all-night day is over, and I open the window that has been closed for days. On the TV, which I had left on instead of a clock, the weatherman or announcer is excitedly talking about the early summer weather.
    Before I know it, the cherry blossom season is over, and my winter clothes, which have not been put away, are cramped and shriveled up in the corner of my bed.

    Woman. It's so warm, I wish I could go to the beach, or if I didn't have a deadline today, I'd totally go to the beach," I mutter to myself as I push the scraps of paper on the floor into the trash.

    Next scene. The woman is in a car crossing a bridge. The windows are fully open and loud music is playing in the car. She is wearing sunglasses, so we cannot see her expression, but she is humming a tune.

    I painted this exhibit, wondering what would happen.
    Where are you going?" I want to travel endlessly, saying things like, "Umm, I'm on my way home." If I get bored, I can just come back.
