Great Exhibitions This Weekend

Yesterday, I went to three exhibitions in Tokyo. First, ’The cosmos in a tea bowl’ at the national museum of modern art was so beautiful. I saw a plethora of tea bowls from the 16th century to now. I felt cosmos from them and I posted my illustration of it on my instagram. Next, I went to an exhibition by Eriko Hirano at Sapce Yui gallery. There were many illustrations about lovely goods that she can’t throw away. For example, cute boxes of cookies and matches, labels of clothes, etc… She loves Japanese traditional culture, and she is such a lovely woman! So I think her painting taste is a lovely Japanese style. Lastly, I saw 'Toko Shinoda in the autumn of my years… 'at Tomo museum. Her style of abstract painting by caligraphy was so dynamic and chic. She is 104 years old now. A picture that she was painting and wearing a kimono is very inspiring for me. A woman next to me told that she always wear kimono. If you are in Tokyo in this weekend, I recommend these exhibitions! I would love to express my identity like them. By the way, today’s photo’s were shot at Kokyogaien National Gardens. I recommend there, too!!!

昨日は、三つの展覧会に行きました。 一つ目は、東京国立近代美術館の「茶碗の中の宇宙」です。16世紀から現代まで、歴代の重要文化財のほとんどを一挙公開ということだけあり、黒い茶碗が次から次へと現れ宇宙体験ができました。インスタグラムに会場内の様子をイラストにしてアップしました。こちらです。 次は、スペースユイで平野恵理子さんの個展「捨てられなかった小さなものたち」を見ました。とても可愛いらしいお菓子の箱やマッチ箱、洋服のラベルまで、恵理子さんの愛に包まれて絵になり、眺めているだけ心が温かくなりました。 最後は「篠田桃紅 昔日の彼方に」を智美術館で鑑賞しました。104歳の篠田桃紅さんは幼少の頃独学で学んだ書をアブストラクトペインティングにした作品が多いです。着物お召しになって絵を描かれている写真も飾られていて、隣にいた女性が、「彼女はいつも着物なのよ」と教えてくれました。 三つとも全部素晴らしい展覧会でした。 私もこんな風にアイデンティティを表現したいです。 ところで、今日の写真は皇居外苑で撮影しました。ここは、東京で三番目に好きな場所です。
