Keiko Koma Gallery
B1 Idaki Building
This is an underground gallery dedicated mainly to recent works of mine in a meditative environment that suits the theme of my works: expressing light at the core of life and wishing to live a life unified with the world far beyond Heaven.
This variety of works, such as tapestries, ties, pendants, etc., is exhibited so that you will feel welcomed by the world far beyond Heaven, giving you supreme comfort, and a feeling of the birth of supreme happiness at the core of your life.
When I am creating my works I usually do not resort to my eyes, but follow the command of my life and intuition. Unconsciously, I let the sensation of life freely choose colors, brushes, lines, etc. This can be said to be the state of Mu, Nothingness, and makes me really happy and cheerful.
The music by Idaki Shin is like an agreeable breeze visiting the gallery, and my works express the true beauty of one’s internality. I believe you can experience the most precious energy to pave a way for the future and true hope for human kind. I am indeed happy to see that the future is full of hope, for I am filled with internal strength and vigor to create a future.

Embraced by breezes of Koguryo
In May 1998, I visited an historic museum while I was traveling to historic sites of Koguryo. I was fascinated by beautiful ancient calligraphy. As I traced the invisible aroma of black paint, ancient memories were reviving in my mind. A glorious scene in the ancient poems is not something gone forever, but shows us a vision that is sure to be realized in some unknown future. In a moment when I was hit by the sensation of transcending the time frame of past, present and future, I felt extreme happiness and acknowledged that everything is connected to the future..
A poem created out of the core of life never fades away. Its words are indispensable for my life now. It makes me happy to read, gives me a lot of strength and shows me the way.
Many exhibits in Reika Salon space are envisioned future worlds.
I saw them in my twenties, when I frequented a coffee shop in Inokashira garden, surrounded by wonderful smells of wood, trees and water. There, I used to spend my time creating poems every day. Reika salon space is also built out of wood, giving a nice feeling of warmth. I will be extremely happy if people come here and spend a meaningful time, moment after moment, as our precious life is not reversible.
