“Merging with the Light” (光との融合)

Been posting beaded accessories, yet I’ve been working on paintings as well. Now, in my previous two experiments, I tried to overcome some weaknesses of pointillism. Here, I tried to take advantage of pointillism’s strength —- In the one below, … Continue reading

「PAX(平和)安全ピン」 ・・ 差別をしないあなたのために

英国で始まった最新の意思表示方法。今や、世界で多くの人たちが、安全ピンを身につけています。難民、LGBT、障がいのある人たち、少数派民族 ・・・ そんな人たちを、「私は歓迎しますよ」という意思表示です。たとえば、http://www.lifehacker.jp/2016/07/160705britain_safetypin.html をご覧くださいな。 私自身も、安全ピンを身につけています。しかし。人によっては、安全ピンの意味をご存じでない。「うん?名札を外したときに、ピンだけ外し忘れたの?」なんてことも。 そこで、ビーズで安全ピンからぶら下げるメッセージを作ってみました。PAX ・・ ラテン語で、「平和」という意味です。 2,000円 (ご指定サイズの安全ピンを含む) プラス送料 で、制作できます。 (このメッセージ、天然石は使っておりません) (このメッセージの場合、あまりにも安いので、送料を別途頂いております) お好きな短いメッセージ ― PAXとか、LOVEとか、EQUALとか ― を、ご指定下さい。その色も、ご指定下さい。 ご注文あるいはお問い合わせを下さるには、私(わしお ひでき)まで、Eメール ermite@jcom.home.ne.jp またはファックス 03-6765-3977 をお願いいたします。

Now, I’ve been wearing a big … Continue reading

“Uncertain” (どうしよう ・・・?)

While I work on beaded accessories as well, I keep experimenting with felt-tip marker pointillism. Another weakness I have found in pointillism is that the resulting colors are so tender and mild the created image too is often very gentle … Continue reading

“Huh? What??” (ええ?なに?)

“Felt-tip marker pointillism” has its weakness — for one thing, since the resulting colors are usually very tender and mild, it is quite tough to obtain strong chiaroscuro (contrast of dark and bright). Thus, in the experiment below, I tried … Continue reading

“Light into Emptiness” (空白に差し込む光)

My “felt-tip marker pointillism” experiment continues — In the piece below, as you can easily tell, the body itself is almost empty. Usually, in a human body drawing (dessin), the artist makes the body “stuffed” and the background is simply … Continue reading
