海と人の夢幻

草月会館

2015 年、ある島で海を見た。

海と空との境がなくなり、

一色の青のみ見る瞬間を目の当たりにした。

それは私に、眼に見えない領域の存在の確かさを強く信じさせた。

次の日の朝に、

宿舎の廊下を挟んだ隣の部屋で

私と同い年の男の子が 首を吊って自殺した。

 

私はこの美しい場所で人が死ぬとは思わなかった。

もし絵画が彼方への慰めになるならば、私は彼の為に絵を描かなくて はならない。

VISION OF THE SEA AND THE PERSON

I saw the sea from an island in the summer of 2015.

There, I looked upon the sea

from the light house and saw the scenery turn to a single shade of blue as the ocean and the sky lost its border.

It proved to me there existed boundaries in which the eye could not see.

The next morning at the lodging house where I was staying at the time, a boy the same age as I was found hanging from the ceilin

I did not think, at such a beautiful place, a person could die.

 

If a painting is a consolation toward those on the other side, It is my duty to devote my painting to him.

“When I look upon the light house from the sea,

does it appear as the accumulation of humanity’s sin, or as a ray of hope?

 I do not know yet.”
