Statement

 私の描く景色に人の姿はない。絵の前を訪れる人々が、描かれた景色の中に入り込み介在することによって私の絵画は完成する。生まれ育った北海道の風景や、私生活の一場面をモチーフとし、日々抱く欠落感、孤独、郷愁の想いを解きながら人々の心情に寄り添えるものを描きたい。人々の原風景を再構築する手段を提示することが私の役割であると考える。そして「私の眼」を通した光景を他者と分かち合うことが出来るならば、それは幸せな事である。

(薄久保香)

People do not appear in the sceneries I paint. My paintings become complete when the people who come to see them enter the painted sceneries and intervene in them. I want to use the sceneries of Hokkaido where I was born and grew up, and scenes from my personal life as motifs to produce my paintings. I want to depict paintings that can empathize with people while unraveling their feeling of deficiency, loneliness, and nostalgia. I believe it is my role to provide a means to reconstruct people’s original landscapes. And I will be happy if I can share the scenes presented through “my eyes” with others.

Testimonial

一度は自然界から独立した直線的矩形を支持体とする絵画空間は、彼女の眼差しを受けながらそれ自体が法則を持つ土壌として静かに循環しはじめる。 奥山帆夏の絵画は、自然の姿が主役でありながらも、描かれぬ人の気配と共にその両者を慮る。どうやらそこには、彼女の育った北海道特有の気候と環境がもたらした自然観との結びつきがあるようだ。そんな彼女は、自身の役割を「私たちの中に眠る原風景を描き出すこと」と捉えており、画面に描かれる光景は、創造的力点として大事なことを忘れがちな我々の日々に密やかに作用する。

The pictorial space supported by the short vertical forms that have gained independence from nature, quietly begin to circulate as a soil with its own laws. Though the subject of Okuyama’s paintings is nature, you can also sense the undepicted humans, and there is consideration towards both parties. It seems like there is a connection to her perspective of nature that was nurtured by the unique climate and environment of Hokkaido where she grew up. She believes that her role is to depict the primordial landscapes that sleep inside us, and the scenes that she paints, discretely act upon our lives as a creative emphasis, as we easily forget important things.
