maki hamanaka「高山と結晶」


2024. 3. 2 sat - 17 sun

13:00 - 18:00 / 水曜休



kankakariで二度目となる浜中マキ絵画展を開催致します。


年の半分を3000mの山域に身を置く浜中マキは、そこにある森羅万象を描き続けています。

胡粉や墨、漆や鉱物などの自然物を用いて描いた絵を水に浸し、画布に残る痕跡を自ら発見する。

その上にさらに筆を重ね、洗い流すことを繰り返しながら徐々に像を結ぶ景色。


彼女にとって描くことは、高山という「原初的な場」の様相を平面に呼び起こす行為であり、

そこで対峙する様々な現象と作品生成のプロセスは近しい位相にあるのかも知れません。


「高山で眺める山肌は原初の創造物の様に崇高な存在であり、一方で周りに自生する植物に内在する時間、

細やかな粒子を想起させる大気で満たされた空間は、地や天にも親密である様な感覚をもたらします」


人の手の入らない空間に存在し続ける圧倒的な時間と物質の質量、

そこに堆積してきた自然現象の機微を繊細に捉えた動的な存在としての絵画。

それらは高山での体験を通してしか生まれ得ない結晶物のように映ります。


是非ご高覧いただけましたら幸いです。

Maki Hamanaka exhibition

“High Peaks and Crystallization”


March 2 - 17, 2024

13:00 - 18:00

Closed on Wednesdays


We are delighted to announce the second exhibition showcasing Maki Hamanaka’s paintings at Kankakari.


Spending half of the year immersed in the high mountain at an elevation of 3000 meters, Maki Hamanaka continues to vividly portray the diverse facets of nature in that environment. Utilizing natural materials like gohun (white pigment), sumi ink, urushi (lacquer), and minerals, she submerges her paintings in water, uncovering traces that linger on the canvas. Through a process of layering and repeated washing, a gradual emergence of landscape imagery takes form.


For Hamanaka, painting is a transformative act that invokes the essence of the "primeval space" within the high mountains onto a two-dimensional plane. The encounters with various phenomena in the high mountains and the artistic creation process might share a close connection.


"Contemplating the mountain surface in the high mountains is akin to encountering a sublime creation. Simultaneously, the space filled with atmospheric particles, reminiscent of delicate elements within the surrounding flora, brings forth a profound connection with both the earth and the sky."


These paintings, as dynamic entities delicately capturing the overwhelming passage of time and the material mass in the untouched spaces of the high mountains, depict the intricate subtleties of natural phenomena accumulated over time. They resonate as crystalline formations, born solely through experiences in the high mountains.


We would be honored if you could take a moment to experience the exhibition.
