    Komorebi (Dappled Sunlight)

    • This is the print carefully reproduced from the original work “Komorebi (Dappled Sunlight)”. The original work was a part of my solo show "Sanpo" at the Dover Gallery in Farfield Mill Art Craft & Heritage Centre. In the midwinter, we often yearn for the warmth of spring, and yet we can enjoy a lovely sunny day at times. In Japan the day like this calls “Koharu-biyori”, people often enjoy warm sunshine beside the window. It reminds me of this work captured a spring day.   


      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『Komorebi (Dappled Sunlight)』を忠実に再現したものです。冬の最中は、しばしば暖かな春が恋しくなるもの。そんな中、時折ポカポカ陽気が楽しめたりします。日本ではこういう日和を小春日和と呼んで、窓辺で暖を取ったりします。ふとこの春を描いた作品を思い出しました。
