Meguri-En-E (Destiny to be linked - painting)

 

 

I paint with my best attention on an object related to the daily life of a client. This unique painting will emerge from a meeting of the client and the artist.

めぐりえんえ

依頼主の生活にまつわるモノに、心を込めて絵を描きます。

出逢いによって生まれる、世界にひとつの絵。

A object related to daily life 

Such as 

a hand mirror, mobile phone, book cover 

or 

a hairdresser’s pochette, a seamstress’s sewing box, a musician’s note case, an actor’s box of candy, a clock and ashtray from a coffee shop, a pencil sharpener from a stationery shop 

or 

a gift of appreciation, a festive bouquet, a photo stand for two, a talisman for a long journey

When I paint while talking with a client, I feel my client’s heart dwells in the painting that emerges from an object. Prayer or hope may be put into it, commemorations made within it, and memories may be captured, in a painting.

When I truly understand the background story which tells why a client treasures a certain thing, I feel a client’s heart and my heart come so close. I hope I can reflect the bond between a client and myself in the painting on an object.

And when someone sees the Meguri-En-E, its owner may tell them a story about it. Maybe the story is related to owner’s background , or maybe it is related to an interest in owner’s daily life. By sharing the story, they may strengthen their relationship.

Yes... Meguri-En E, which emerged from a relationship between you and me, may bring about good relations between you and someone else.

A painting which could not have been created without you, it is a warm heart, which can be passed on, from one to another, again and again.

An example of Meguri-En-E

Client      :Person who will move abroad

Object     :Mobile phone

Motif       :Ganesha

Occasion :Setting off from Japan

Request   :Please use a feather from a parakeet I used to own 15 years ago.

Episode   : 

Ganesha, a Hindu deity, has a real parakeet’s feather. When my friend was cleaning her room before moving abroad, she found a parakeet feather, from a bird which she kept 15 years ago. I tried to use her favorite colors, in the creation, and one hour later, a deity emerged holding a talisman for her departure, a gift celebrating a new way of life, and a memory of her beloved bird. I hope this will keep watching over her, wherever she may be.

依頼主  :音楽家

モノ   :パソコン2台

希望   :シンプルで質感にこだわったもの

エピソード:仕事用のPC、メールチェック用のPC。キーボードをメインに扱う音楽家さんでしたので、1台目の仕事用PCは五線譜と音符をイメージし、パッと見はただの黒線に見えるように細かな紋様を描かせていただきました。

メールチェック用のPCは、数年前に亡くなられた奥さんのものでした。Apple社に勤めておられたようで、奥さん自身の奮闘も想い出も詰まった大切な品です。私は絵に、3つの意味を込めました。ひとつは、浮遊。直線から浮かび上がったリンゴマークは、毎日を少しでも気楽に穏やかに過ごせるようにという願い。二つめは、音楽。キーボードの鍵盤が弾け音が広がるイメージと、依頼主の作る曲から得た湿度感・境界の明瞭さと曖昧さ。そして三つめは、やはり目を背けることはできなかった、奥さんの存在。正直、立ち入っていいのかと悩みましたが、この方がいらっしゃらなければ私が絵を描くことはなく、この品を託された意味を思いました。依頼主の心にいつでも奥さんの笑顔があるように、毎日顔を合わせる大切な品の中央からは、太陽のようであった奥さんの温かい光が溢れている。こうして、お会いしたことのない奥さんに背中を押されるように、描き上げることができました。
