Stars and Desert「星と荒野・砂漠」のシリーズ

    ※ In English: 英語版はこちら 「It was clear that art and beauty were among those necessary things we had to provide in an emergency. (緊急時に私たちが提供しなければならなかった必要なものの中に、芸術と美が含まれていたことは明らかでした。)」 ロジャー・ ラウザー『美の香り』著者 今年2021年は、東日本大震災から10年目にあたります。また2001年9月11日に米国で起きた同時多発テロ事件からは20年。そして昨年以来、世界的に新型コロナウイルスのパンデミックに見舞われ、数多くの人々が命を落としました…。 生きていると、失うことや悲しみに遭遇します。でも、人生、辛い経験も含め何事も無駄にはならないということを覚えておく必要があります。それらが無駄にならないよう生きていかなければなりません。これらの出来事を経験したことで、私たち自身や、地域、町、都市、国々がより強く、より賢く、より温かく、より明るく、より愛情深くなるでしょう。そういう方向であって欲しいですよね。 ただ、自分の力を信じるということではありません。逆に人間の限界を理解し、弱さを素直に謙虚に認めて受け入れることで、対処の仕方も、見方も、世界観も変わります。空を見上げてみてください。 私がメッセージ性のある絵画、Stars and Desert「星と荒野・砂漠」のシリーズを創った理由と内容を以下に述べます✨💙 絵などのビジュアル・アート(視覚芸術)、音楽、その他様々な形態のアート(芸術)には、私たち自身や他の人々を癒す力、動かす力、視点を変えるがあります。私もまだアーティストでない頃から、個人的にそれらを何度も経験しました。皆さんもちょっと心を開いてみてください。 “Path, Mighty Hue” パス・マイティー・ヒュー 軌跡 … Continue reading
