About the Work

“I Recall the Time When My Feet Lifted Off the Ground, Ever So Slightly...” is based on the artist’s 2008/2009 “Chrysanthemums” series, which were described in Daily DuJour (Art & Cultural Exchange) this way:

“Among the paintings in the exhibition are Murakami’s new Chrysanthemums series of tondos (circular-format paintings), which refer to the 17th-century Japanese artist Ogata Kōrin whose white chrysanthemum motifs left a profound impression on Murakami. The flowers stand out on gold or platinum-leaf backgrounds in the purest Japanese tradition. The precious materials and format create a delicate contrast with the fragility of the ethereal plants. Murakami also pays tribute to another influential artist, Andy Warhol, in a series of tondos featuring candy-colored flowers on gold or platinum backgrounds.”

Like Murakami, Ogata Kōrin is famed for his bold designs but he is also known for his striking contrasts on gold backgrounds. He defied tradition and developed a very original style, expressed in spare and simple highly idealized forms, and with absolute disregard for realism and convention. Murakami pays tribute to this artist’s style and sensibility by incorporating Kōrin thematic elements like the flowing river of gold (or red) into his own unique style. “I Recall the Time When My Feet Lifted Off the Ground, Ever So Slightly...” is a circular artwork measuring 28 in diameter, and is a hand-signed offset lithograph with cold stamp and high gloss varnish.

About the Artist

Takashi Murakami was born in Tokyo, Japan on February 1, 1962. His influence for art derives from his mother, who studied needlepoint and designed textiles. Murakami knew he wanted to be an artist when he grew up, and had always taken a large interest in animation and comics. He studied art throughout much of his adolescence, and applied to study at Tokyo National University. He was accepted and later received his Ph.D. in Fine Arts and Music, in which he learned “Nihong”, or traditional Japanese painting. After his studies, Murakami moved to New York in 1994 and was exposed to, and inspired by, Western contemporary artists like Jeff Koons.
