江見 容子

Yoko Emi

1959年兵庫県生まれ。「書画同源」と言われるように文字の起源は象形であり書と絵画は本来同じ根から発していると考えられています。江見容子は、人類の進化と共に壮大な歴史の中で作りあげられてきた文字の起源や変遷に思いを馳せ、文字(漢字や古代文字)から受け取るイメージを創造に込めて作品を制作。艶感のある立体的な墨跡と、淡墨の滲みによるミステリアスで静かな流動美を追求しています。

1959- / F / Hyogo, Japan
In keeping with the phrase, “Sho and paintings are fundamentally the same,” the origin of characters lies in pictography, and both sho and painting are considered to share the same roots.
Yoko Emi gives full play to her thoughts about the origin of characters and their changes and development over the course of human evolution and history, and she produces her works by sublimating the images she receives from these characters (including kanji and ancient scripts) into her creations. In addition, she pursues stereoscopic lines with the glossy look and the calm and mysterious beauty of flowing marks formed by blurs of pale sumi ink.
