moyu - JCAT



  • Since childhood, Moyu has loved drawing. She never imitated others, and drew with a style of her own, pursuing any colors that interested her. In junior high school she encountered oil paints. Fascinated by their possibilities, she studied oil painting in high school and college. Afterwards, she used this learning to appreciate the rich natural colors of her hometown, Hirosaki, Japan. One day, at an exhibition of Raymond Savignac posters, she realized, “Paintings should have messages.” Moyu now burrows into the message of paintings. An important aspect of her art is how the viewer approaches the work with a wondering air, and receives positive feelings through her painting. Her works have the ability to charm others because they express a border between imagination and reality. Her positive attitude forms a communication between her and the viewer. This interaction connects with people and the paintings become part of their life.

    Moyu wishes that viewers will see her pictures many times and feel deeply the accumulated affection within them; so she strives to share worthy themes. Her aim is to create works which speak even to those who have no thought of art.She began efforts for publishing her work at a solo exhibition in Hirosaki, May, 2014.


  • 幼少期から絵が好きだった moyu は人の真似はせず、自分のスタイルで描いていた。自分の興味のあった色を追求し中学で油絵に出合い、油絵具の可能性に魅了され高校・大学と油絵を専 門に学んだ。しかしその生活に終止符を打つ。その後、地元青森県弘前市で豊かな色で心を満たしていったMoyuは、レ イモン・サヴィニャックのポスター展示から「メッセージ性のある絵」を学び取り探り始める。moyu の絵にとって大切なのは、見る人が絵を少し不思議に思い歩み寄ること、見ているうちにポジティブになることである。それは心象風景と実際の風景の境目を 見つめて描いていることから、人を惹きつける。彼女の前向きな姿勢は、絵を見る人とのコ ミュニケーションへと繋がる。そして対話する絵は、生活の一部になった後も、人と人とを 結びつける。moyu は、時間をかけて描いている間に蓄積された想いを、 人にできるだけ読み込んでほしいと考え、深く読み解くためになるべく重いテーマを 選んで描いている。これからのmoyu の目標は、絵に興味がない人へも語りかけられる作品を生み出すことだ。2014 年5月の個展をスタートとし、作品の発表に努めている。
