Central to Tsubota’s exploration is the concept of “unknown memories” – a notion that encapsulates the intangible essence of human experience and emotion. Through his evocative use of color and texture, Tsubota encourages viewers to reconnect with their subconscious, prompting reflections on the profound significance of the natural world amidst the chaos of modern life. According to Tsubota, the colors of nature resonate deeply within the human psyche, influencing our dreams and shaping our consciousness.

In an era dominated by artificiality, Tsubota’s work serves as a poignant reminder of the enduring importance of natural colors and their profound impact on our collective psyche.
