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.
