Lotus


 Lotus Bud

For me, the lotus is the most beloved plant in every respect. The leaves and flowers that open in a circle on which both Buddha and frogs suit to stay, the buds with a savory scent, and the simple appearance of the stems that grow smoothly. Since it is aquatic, light can be transmitted coolly when looking up from the bottom of the water, and a rhythm of shape with the water surface as the background is created when looking down from the sky. This must be why it is loved as a motif of ancient and modern religions and arts.

蓮はあらゆる点において、最も愛すべき植物です。お釈迦様もカエルも乗せたくなる円形に開いた葉と花、馥郁たる香りをはらんだ蕾、すうっとのびる茎のシンプルな有様。水生であることから、水底から見上げれば涼やかに光を透過し、空から俯瞰すれば水面を背景とした形状のリズムが生まれます。古今の宗教、芸術のモチーフとして愛される所以でしょう。

Torn Japanese colored paper and acrylic resin on 17×17 inches canvas

45.5cm×45.5 cm スクエアカンバスに和紙・アクリル樹脂

Choice of sizes and shapes of the canvas is part of my creation.  There always seems to be "one right answer" for that choice.  To above pieces, 17×17 inches square canvas was that.

Initially I planned to paint 4 canvases of this size to display them on the wall either in horizontal or rectangle.  All 4 were supposed to be unified in rather cool tones of color, but it turned to cold winter season when I finished the 2nd piece.  Since I would like to treat warm tones of color in cool-temperature environment, I need to wait for the next summer to start remaining 2 pieces. 

カンバスサイズとカンバス形状の選択も制作の一部です。その選択にはいつも「ただ一つの正しい答え」があると感じます。この2作については45.5cm四方の正方形が答えでした。

当初は4枚制作して横一列または矩形に並べて壁に飾る予定でした。4枚すべて涼し気な色調で統一されるはずでしたが、2枚目を書き終わったときに冬が訪れました。気温が低いと温かい色調の絵を描きたくなるので、この4枚セットの残り2枚にとりかかるためには、次の夏を待たねばなりません。
