見附正康 無題 2016 九谷焼、赤絵 H12.1xφ47.6cm Masayasu Mitsuke Untitled 2016 Kutaniware, Aka-e H12.1xφ47.6cm
オオタファインアーツでは九谷焼の赤絵作家・見附正康の個展を開催します。弊廊での個展開催は約8年ぶりとなります。

白磁にベンガラと呼ばれる酸化鉄で上絵付けする赤絵は、中国・宋代に始まったと言われています。九谷では江戸後期に赤絵スタイルが誕生し、飯田屋八郎右衛門により「赤絵細描」としてさらに昇華されます。

飯田屋の流れを継承する見附の作品は、手彩とは思えない細密な線描を特徴としています。筆一本から生み出される無数の細い線と小さな点。それらはコンピューターで描いたかのように均質に並び、現代的な幾何学模様を構成します。一見無機質にも見えるパターンには、麻の葉、亀甲のような日本の伝統柄から、アラベスク風、中世ヨーロッパ風の柄など、様々な文化の要素が融合しています。

今展では、新作を含む大皿を中心に展示を行います。陶磁の白と赤絵のコントラスト、アクセントとして加わる金彩や七宝の青の軽やかさ。直径約50センチの画面いっぱいにパターンが広がる大皿では、見附作品の美しさがより一層際立ちます。また、新作では今まであまり見られることのなかったモチーフもパターンに加わり、今後の展開を期待させるものとなっています。

時代も文化も超越する独自の赤絵スタイル。それを支える伝統技術の素晴らしさ。この機会に見附作品の世界をぜひご堪能ください。
Ota Fine Arts is pleased to present a solo exhibition of Masayasu Mitsuke, an artist who paints Kutani ware, a style of Japanese porcelain. It has been 8 years since Ota Fine Arts has had his solo exhibition.

Aka-e (red enamel painting using iron oxide called Bengala on white porcelains) was established in the Song Dynasty of China. In Kutani, the style of Aka-e was formed in the late Edo period. It was more sophisticatedly developed by the porcelain painter IIDAYA Hachirouemon, and it was known as "Akae-saibyo" (detailed Aka-e drawings).

The works by Mitsuke, who has inherited the style of IIDAYA, possess characteristic and detailed line drawings belying the fact that they are hand colored. Using a single brush he creates numerous thin lines and tiny dots. These sequences are drawn as if by computer graphics and compose of modern geometrical patterns. These patterns apparently seem mechanical and inorganic, however, they are in harmony with various cultures such as Japanese traditional designs (like flax ornaments or hexagonal patterns) to Arabesque designs and even Medieval European designs.

In this exhibition, Mitsuke will mainly introduce large dishes including new works. His works express a contrast between the white color of the porcelains and Aka-e, as well as the sleekness of gold paint or blue color of enamel as accents. The beauty of Mitsuke's works is significantly seen and stands out in the large dish that is 50 centimeters in diameter, filled with geometrical patterns on full surface. Moreover, he has challenged himself to add new motifs in his patterns, and these new designs have hardly been shown in the past. This invites us to pursue his future development as well.

While Mitsuke's original style of Aka-e crosses time and culture, the splendor of his traditional technique remains. We look forward to your visit to the world of Mitsuke's works in this exhibition.
