    Silence of Night

    • This is the print carefully reproduced from the original work "Silence of Night". The original work was created for 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". 


      On the theme of daffodils, I kept in mind how to come close to the daily life of the poet. These daffodils were found one day when I researched the garden at Rydal Mount, the spacious garden Wordsworth designed by himself. For this work, I imagined the poet walking about in the garden on a moonlit night after the long labour of gardening in early spring. Before the modernisation swept the whole country, the moonlight would be far brighter than we can imagine. After all, it was Wordsworth, who pioneered to stem the tide of industrialisation into the Lake District. "Silence of Night", in tribute to his legacy.


      本ポスターは、作品『Silence of Night』を忠実に再現したものです。作品は、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周年記念展『I Wandered…』にて発表した作品の一つ。


      『水仙』という主題で念頭に置いたのは、くだんの詩人の日常にできるだけ近づいてみたいということだった。本作に描いたのは、事前研究のためワーズワースが自ら造園した広大なライダル・マウントの庭園を散策中に見つけた水仙。春の月夜、ワーズワースが終日の庭仕事を終えて庭園を巡り歩く姿を思い浮かべつつ、描いたもの。近代化の波が国を呑み込む以前、夜月はどれほどの輝きに満ちていたことだろう。何より湖水地方を工業化から護ったのは、誰あろうワーズワースでした。『Silence of Night』--- 詩人の栄誉を讃えて。
