HITOSHI TSUBOYAMA is a Japanese artist. Tsuboyama’s painting main feature is the particular spatial conception. By attempting a bold synthesis between three-dimensional space representation of the Western tradition and, the bidimensionality of Oriental painting, the artist gets to a new and neutral spatial approach. If purpose of realism was to propose an optical and vision fidelity, respect to the object observed, Tsuboyama’s "neutral realism" instead suggests space and forms that require an active participation of the viewer's creativity. In fact through compact brushstrokes, animated by delicate chromatic games variations, he comes to a sincere and neutral painting, that does not impose an archè, a principle of vision, but on the contrary, by limiting itself to suggest the essen- tials elements and by relying on the observer’s conscience, is open up to new and possible realities. After all, as claimed by Albert Einstein "reality is an illusion, although it’s very persistent".
