The Psychology of Trees



“When we have learned how to listen to trees, then the brevity and the quickness and the childlike hastiness of our thoughts achieve an incomparable joy.”
-- Hermann Hesse

The Psychology of Trees by Eduardo Fujii

In the enchanted dance between the ancient sentinels of the forest and the fleeting souls of humankind, I find my inspiration—a poetic pilgrimage into the profound psychology of trees. Within the whispering leaves and the sinuous embrace of their branches lies a realm of understanding that transcends the boundaries of language. I am merely a humble artist, weaving pictures to capture the elusive magic that courses through the veins of these arboreal giants.

Consider, if you will, the clandestine symphony of the forest. It is a melody that echoes the heartbeat of the earth, resonating through the roots of the trees. These silent behemoths, with their limbs outstretched like benevolent sorcerers, beckon us to partake in their ethereal wisdom. In the realm of the trees, psychology is not a sterile science but a pulsating energy, an ancient rhythm that orchestrates the dance of life.

The invisible restorative power of trees is a clandestine elixir, a potion brewed by the alchemists of time. As humans, we may not perceive the subtle currents of their mystical energies, but our souls respond to their healing touch. Trees are therapists of the spirit, offering solace to the weary wanderers who seek refuge beneath their leafy canopies. The rustle of leaves becomes a lullaby, soothing the cacophony of our minds, while the fragrance of pine and oak carries with it the balm of forgotten memories.

 Picture, if you will, a sunlit glade where a wise old oak imparts its ancient secrets to a weary traveler. The roots of the tree, intertwined with the roots of the soul, exchange tales of ages long past. In this sacred space, the air is infused with the magical juices that run within the veins of the trees—a concoction of resilience, patience, and an unwavering commitment to growth. It is a potion that seeps into our consciousness, sparking the embers of creativity and kindling the flames of introspection.

As an image maker and seeker of truths, I navigate the labyrinthine corridors of the human psyche with the guidance of my arboreal muses. The language of trees is not spoken but felt, an intricate dance of energies that transcends the limits of mere words. In their silent counsel, I discover the kaleidoscope of emotions that reside within the heartwood of existence.

 Through my artwork, I aim to unravel the symbiotic dance between trees and humanity—a dance where the roots of understanding intertwine, and the branches of imagination reach for the celestial realms. In the poetry of trees, I find solace, inspiration, and the enduring belief that, just like the leaves that flutter in the breeze, the stories of our souls are written upon the parchment of the forest.

The Psychology of Trees body of work is being featured at the "Welcome 2021" exhibition organized by Israeli Art Market from January 1 to March 1, 2021 to welcome the new year.






Artist Statement

Eduardo Fujii winner at 2021 Tokyo International Photo AwardsFor this body of work, I draw on my background in painting and classical music to create artworks full of mystery and romanticism. I approach a variety of subjects, all having one characteristic in common. They are usually examples of what too often goes unnoticed. By applying a poetic style, I create intense self-expressive images luring viewers to slow down and take the time to appreciate often-missed beauty in their busy lives. With an almost self-portraiture approach, I unveil the mysteries of nature. By means of conceptual collages and cinematic effects, I challenge long-held assumptions of what photography means to us. Rather than presenting stark reality, I prefer to fabricate an illusion to let viewers explore their imagination limits.
My work never comes directly from the camera in a recognizable form. It appears as lyric compositions in which dream and reality meet, past and present have no meaning, and the stories they tell are left unfinished. Imagination and self-inspection always play a key role. I create work through personal therapeutic processes that imprint inner unresolved feelings into abstract representations of reality."
