Chizuru Abe Kenji Tao Marino Miura 公庄直樹
I want to express flowers blooming in the garden, children playing, and warm moments of daily life.
Using iwa-enogu (mineral pigments) and metallic mud and foil, the motifs of flora and fauna are expressed in the style of old ink paintings. Please look at the expression of Japanese painting today.
The theme that I express by copperplate engraving is “Small happiness”. I draw “the story of small life” by overlapping it with small animals, plants and flowers. I am healed and encouraged by the gestures and expressions of animals. They gently remind me that there are important things in the activities we repeat so naturally that we don’t even notice.
