    • This is the print carefully reproduced from the original work “Dandelion”, which was featured in the exhibition “I Wandered…“ at Rydal Mount in 2015 for the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the final publication of Wordsworth's poem "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud" known as "Daffodils". As I prepared for this exhibition, I was wondering how to represent his multifaceted personality with a series of works. He was, needless to say, one of the greatest Romantic poets. He was also a fervent activist, a passionate walker, and a diligent gardener. 


      This work was produced in 2011 when I started to enjoy gardening. It requires hard work but it’s really rewarding. Dandelions are, however, regarded as gardener’s natural enemies! I’m always waging war against dandelions every spring despite our small garden and wondering how much more Wordsworth struggled to maintain his vast gardens at Rydal Mount. Nevertheless, this bright yellow wildflower fascinates me with its tenacious yet humble nature as well as the beauty of its intricate design. So, I decided to include this work for the exhibition for sharing the common experience with the poet. 

      本ポスターは、2015年ライダル・マウントにて開催したウィリアム・ワーズワースの詩『水仙』最終稿出版200周年を記念する個展『I Wandered…』にて発表した作品の一つ『Dandelion』を忠実に再現したものです。本展覧会を準備するに際して、ワーズワースという多彩な顔を持つ人物をどのように一つの作品シリーズとして発表したものか、熟考しました。ワーズワースはロマン派詩人の巨匠の一人であることは言わずもがな、熱心な社会活動家、飽くなき健脚の持ち主、そして勤勉な園芸家でもありました。
