Auto-translate:

清澄庭園は三菱・岩崎家が代々造成、管理されてきたお庭です。自社の汽船を使って全国津々浦々から運んできた「名石」がそこかしこに溢れる石の博物館のような庭です。 作品のモチーフは園内の泉水を周遊するために池の縁水の中に石を配して渡れるように組まれた磯渡という飛び石です。紀州や伊予の青石が魅力的。迫力のある組み方です。 渡る(清澄庭園) title: cross(The Kiyosumi garden) year: 2020 size: 310 × 430㎜ material:paper / acrylic paint /

About the artist

I am working on a piece of work that expresses a "stone garden" using paper, a material that is the exact opposite of stone. I apply layers of color to the paper and paint as if I am carving the annual rings of the stone. The color of the stone is not homogeneous, but wavers in a subtle gradation, and the color seeps out from within. Using paper, a medium created by human beings, to imitate stone, a symbol of eternity, through his own body is an act of reverence for nature, and is also an act of longing. Many of my works are inspired by Japanese gardens, most notably the Katsura Rikyu Garden.
