Masanori Oka - "Saho"

2015, Nihonga ( mixed media as rice paper, traditional Japanese watercolor, sumi ink, leafs, nikawa etc.) H40 cm x ×W40 cm 佐保姫は、日本古来より伝承される春を司る機織りの女神、龍田姫は、秋を司る裁縫の女神です。1000年前より、和歌(日本の定型詩、俳句の原型) にも多く詠まれ、春霞は佐保姫が織なし、紅葉は龍田姫が染めると例え、四季の移り変わりを尊ぶ習慣があります。和歌は当時、貴族を中心とする教養層が、自分の心の伝える手立てで作り始めたましたが、その心象風景は、具象では無くかなり抽象的なものと考えます。現代の私が表現したい佐保と龍田と、古来の伝承を重ね合わせた作品です。

'I love wanting to eat you" 2010, mixed media (fabric, bottans, babble wrapping sheet etc) H70cm x W75cm x D20cm The theme is“Tsugihagi” that is form to sew cloth with a thread. (As if I became Black Jack. Black Jack is a doctor who is a chief character coming out to comics of Osamu Tezuka.) It does not become at all as before, and becomes the distorted, unshapely form. However, it means that my works connect the disintegrating world with. I think that it is the human being revival.
