In 1969, he held a solo exhibition " L'espoir " at Suruga-Dai Gallery, Kanda, Tokyo.


Makoto Hatori exhibited abstract pieces made from plaster, wood, cloth ( canvas ) with colouring, as well as from sand. Although he intended to express the " nature " of the contenporary period through the materials, the materials used were traditional and did not have enough expressive power to match the objective. As a result, his intention was absorved in the circumstances of that period.


Left: Colouring on plywood, with sand. Right: Colouring on plaster and canvas. He put sand in the canvas bag, and made a cross with cylinder made from plaster. The ideal behind this piece, i.e. state of characteristics and materiality, continues to the present in his work.
