BIOGRAPHY


  • si_ku was born at 3AM in Tochigi on March 3rd in the 3rd year of Heisei (1991). She always loved animals and was surrounded by them growing up.She still lives with a large number of living creatures. Fish, birds, cats, insects, reptiles and amphibians…. she also likes nature and photographs it nearly every day. Adding studies of dessin, croquis and oil paintings, she started putting titles and her name on the pictures from 2008, and producing them as works. In the same year, she began activities as an author and joined a number of group exhibitions in the Tokyo suburbs after this. She has also taken care of the PV animation, image drawings and package design for the musician Kikuo.

    With the image of depicting the texture of life, she draws the abstract elements of the work and then integrates people into it. By putting stress on expressing the unique originality of the material rather than expressing it concretely, she depicts life and the workings of nature itself, rather than depicting beauty on the surface. The description of a circle inside the monitor screen are images of a cell, the sun, soul, egg and a life form. The space, where cool colors describe coolness and moisture, warm colors describes warmth and cuteness, and the color yellow represents light, and the source of life, is the most comfortable place for living creatures to be. It produces rich images of water, temperature, the power of life, security purification and salvation etc. with detailed coloring and description. 

    In this way, her view of life and death, which she had obtained through her experience of living with various living creatures from past to present, is providing feedback to her work. Young naked girls represent the existence of nobody. She doesn’t belong to any culture nor context, and has a very transparent existence, close to the soul. At the same time she has a very charming existence with cuteness and natural glamor as well, and her deformity emphasizes her charm. She also gives her works the vivid impression of the power of life through my dynamic drawing and production process, making it dynamic and fluid, giving it temporal axes, and creating her work as if she was raising living creatures.


  • 平成3年3月3日3時、栃木で生まれ育つ。いきものが好きで、いきものに囲まれて育ち、現在も多くの生き物と暮らしてる。魚、鳥、猫、虫、爬虫類、両生類など…。また自然が好きで、毎日のように写真を撮っている。デッサンやクロッキー、油絵など習作を重ね、2008年からは絵にタイトルと名前を書き、作品として制作するようになった。同年に作家活動を開始し、以後東京近郊で多数のグループ展に参加。また、音楽家のきくおさんの曲のPVアニメーション、イメージ画、パッケージデザインを担当している。

    生命の質感を描くようなイメージで、作品の抽象的な部分を描き、人物と溶け込ませている。具象以上に、物質自体の個性をより強く表現することで、見かけの美しさを描くのではなく、生命や自然の営みそのものを描き出す。画面内の円の描写は、細胞、太陽、魂、卵、生命体のイメージ。寒色は涼しさや潤い、暖色は温もりやかわいさ、そして黄色は生命の源としての光を描写するなど、そこは生き物にとってとても落ち着く空間であり、水、温度、生命力、安心、浄化、救済など、緻密な配色と描写によって鑑賞者に豊かな印象を与える。このように、過去から現在に至るまでの、生き物との触れ合いを通じて得た死生観が作品にフィードバックされている。

    幼い裸の少女は、何者でもない存在。文化、文脈に属さず、透明度の高い、魂に近い存在。また、かわいさ、さりげない色気をもった魅力的な存在でもあり、その魅力を強調するためにデフォルメしている。また、ダイナミックな描画や制作工程で、生命力そのもののような印象を作品に吹き込んでおり、動的かつ流動的で、時間軸を与え、作品そのものを生き物として育てるように制作している。
