目白庭園の庭石は山梨県の花崗岩を用いているそうです。切石特有の荒荒しさも年月を経て庭と溶け込んでいく表情があります。同じ産地の石材を使うことでまとまりのある空間になるように感じました。限られた敷地内だからこその工夫が沢山あるお庭です。 跳ぶ(目白庭園) title: hop(Mejiro 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.
