    Lamb on a Hill

    • This is the print carefully reproduced from the original work “Lamb on a Hill”, 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". 


      Before creating this work, I was wondering how to capture the essence of the beauty of the Lakeland where I am living with an alternative approach in the way not depicting its typical landscape numerously produced by other artists? I was wondering how to embody the substance of the Lakeland life which interweaves people with land and vice versa? I attempted to create narratives with a minimum of selected elements, such as light, cloud, green, wind, animals, etc., the essence of the ethos in the relationship between human and the land. This work “Lamb on a Hill" is, I believe, one of my successful attempts.  


      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『Lamb on a Hill』を忠実に再現したものです。


      ところで、ボクは本作品の制作に取り組む前に自問しました。自ら生活を営む湖水地方の景勝を作品化するのに、かつて他の多くの優れた美術家たちが範として残した多くの作品とは違ったアプローチは可能か。人と土地、風土と暮らしぶりが美しく織り込まれた湖水地方特有の景観を作品に昇華することは可能か、と。光、雲、草原、風、そして牧場の動物たちなど、この土地と人間との関係性の中に存在する特色のうち、モチーフとなる要素を最小限に抑え、新たな物語の生成を試みたのが、本作『Lamb on a Hill』。この試みが作品に昇華できたもののうちの一つとなりました。
