    Autumn Rain

    • This is the print carefully reproduced from the original work “Autumn Rain”. The original work was a part of my solo show "Sanpo" at the Dover Gallery in Farfield Mill Art Craft & Heritage Centre. A fallen leaf is my one of the most important subjects with which I explore the notion of fragility and ephemerality of life. It is my interpretation of the concept of Still Life genre. The original work was the graphite drawing finished with acrylic white.   


      The Japanese term “sanpo” means walk, stroll, ramble, and wander. It is not a walk for the walk’s sake, but for the sake of spiritual health, as it were, meditative act in our daily life. In his wander Wordsworth immortalized the experience of an encounter with a daffodil field in his poem “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud”. The lover of nature, Beethoven made a point of taking a walk in the woods every day for his musical inspiration. It is during “sanpo” I often encounter stunning scenes in light and shade, find beautiful objects never noticed before, and have some flash of inspiration for creativity. This is one of my work I explored the essence of my personal experience in “sanpo” by assembling the fragment of images of which I was inspired, through which I pondered the existential meaning along the lines of art history. 


      本ポスターは、ファーフィールドミル・アートクラフト&ヘリテッジ・センターのドーバー・ギャラリーで開催した個展『さんぽ』の一作品『Autumn Rain』を忠実に再現したものです。落ち葉はボクにとって、最も大切な主題のひとつ。それを通して、生命の脆弱さ、儚さについて探求しているのです。それはまた、静物画という伝統ジャンルに対する、極私的アプローチでもあります。なお、オリジナル作品は鉛筆ドローイングにアクリルホワイトで仕上げました。
