"Largo, #2"

"Largo, #2" [15x22cm, on medium weight acid free paper, $250 USD; worldwide shipping]
Tchinai Takeo, a left-hand classical pianist (his right hand has been disabled by a nerve disease), says that a score shows the way the body moves and acts. Drawing does the same. A work of drawing shows not only the motion/rest of the hand but also the way the artist breathes and hums. Line drawing can show this most effectively. I have recently begun perceiving drawing as an extension of practicing music.
智内威雄さんという左手のピアニスト/音楽家 (右手は局所性ジストニアという病のため演奏できない)が、楽譜は身体の動きを示していると言っているのですが、絵も同じでは。特に鉛筆やペンの絵はそれが見えやすい。手の動きはもちろんのこと、描き手の息づかいや鼻歌を歌っている様子が可視化されている。観客はその「音楽」を楽しんでいるはず。段々、絵を音楽の延長として捉えられるようになってきた。
