What is Phenomenology?

Phenomenology is considered a branch of philosophy, but it is different from the kind of philosophy that asks “what is truth? Phenomenology is rather a “methodology” to ask “why and how is it certain (or “recognized” or “valid”) that something is true? It is a “methodology” and “principle of thought” to ask “why and how is it believed to be true (or “recognized” or “valid”)?

What is “phenomenological reduction”?

Phenomenological reduction is a central concept in phenomenology, first proposed by E. Husserl, which is used together with “epistemology.

Phenomenology considers every act of cognition to be a “subjective belief” of the subject in the living world. The act of questioning and clarifying the “conditions and structure of the formation of the belief” in which the living world appears to oneself is called phenomenological reduction.

Jacometti tried to depict what exists in reality, itself. His attitude appears to be a phenomenological exploration of his world.

However, there is a limit to how completely a three-dimensional object can be represented in two dimensions.

Horizontal and vertical” By being conscious of these two vectors in the picture plane, he must simultaneously acquire flatness and three-dimensionality.

Giacometti left many drawings of human figures from the front. In the process of drawing, he persistently adds horizontal and vertical lines to the picture plane.

And the works remain unfinished.

As a result, it can be said that Giacomettei’s works also express the impossibility of “painting what exists as it exists.

There is an irreplaceable power in the paintings left by Giacomettei, and it is in this very context that I would like to create a new work.
