日本の現代美術界を牽引する気鋭の作家、岡村桂三郎の展覧会。屏風状に連なる巨大な作品には、象や鳥、獅子や龍などの生き物が描かれています。バーナーで焦がした巨大な杉板に木炭でモチーフの形をとり、その中をスクレーパーで削ってうろこ状にする得意な手法によって生まれる作品群は、従来の日本画にはなない圧倒的な存在感を示しています。

This is an exhibition of Keizaburo Okamoto. He is an emerging artist and a leading figure in the Japanese contemporary art world. A gigantic work that is shaped like a folding screen has creatures such as elephants, birds, lions and dragons painted on it. He uses his favorite technique of forming motifs with charcoal on a huge piece of cedar wood which has been burned with a burner. He then uses a scraper to make it look scaly. His work has an overwhelming presence unlike conventional Japanese paintings.


tegusuでは展覧会広報物のメインビジュアルや印刷物のデザインを担当しました。展覧会名称の和文・欧文は、杉板を削って生まれる岡村氏の作品をイメージし、一部を削り取ったような印象に仕上げています。また色彩が少なく静寂を感じさせる作品の印象に調和するよう、全体をブラックに統一し、作品の重厚感を引き立てています。

tegusu was responsible for the main graphic of the exhibition’s PR tools and the design of printed materials. The Japanese and alphabet letters of the exhibition name look as if part of them were scraped off. This reflects the image of Okamura’s art which is created by scraping cedar wood. The black color uniformly used in the overall design matches his work that doesn’t have bright colors and evokes a sense of stillness. It also adds to a heavy feeling of his work.
