■ Spiritual art 「World of 'sumi' 」
'Sumi' is traditional oriental black ink. By adding water, 'sumi' can have various concentrations.
'Washi' is the most traditional Japanese paper.
This is one of the unique features of 'sumi' which oil painting doesn't have. Therefore, artists can use techniques like feathering to express lines and shades of 'sumi'.
Teruko was known as an internationally acclaimed artist. She held private exhibitions at galleries in New York in 1966. Her 'sumi' paintings and new style of paintings using acrylic colors were highly praised.
She has also succeeded on paintings with 'sumi' in Germany.
This exhibition is planed by these works.
Teruko said.
「Being in Germany (from1972),what was I going to paint?
There I gave up everything but 'sumi'. Not only colors, I did away any of forms I had.
Living in Europe, the source of the modern of art. I became endlessly fascinated by Japanese letters, hiragana, especially their ancient form. I couldn't resist the desire to paint hiragana not as letters but as a Japanese form.
Then started the battle with 'sumi', I strove so hard to make the 'sumi' and water flow to the direction I intended, and in vain.
The 'sumi' water flew to any direction and blotted there.
Looking at it in despair, I found an unexpected excellent picture.
This made me aware of the attachment of my ego.
Just follow the water with my mind in naught.
The water was alive and let the 'sumi' absorb and spread in the paper.
What a wonder! innocent existence.」
Then, she moved back to Japan, because it seemed that it was not easy to use 'washi' under the dry climate in Germany. She made avant-garde works with 'sumi' and 'washi' in Japan after her 10 years experience in Germany. Her works built up a new world of 'sumi' and 'washi' with an innovation method, which no one could imitate her works.
