Comment
既に日本でも広く知られる作家である。しかし近年その色彩は制御され、より重厚なイメージへと変化してきました。生命の気配を想像させるその堅牢な画面は決して冷たい計算によるものではなく、作者と版との対話によって紡ぎだされている様に感じるのです。どこかその対話を覗いてみたい作家である。

Kramer’s recent works exhibit strong image-making through a controlled use of colour. I can only guess that the pulsing life in his art is woven together by an intense dialogue between the artist and the plate; cold-hearted “planning” on a piece of paper would not be able to easily convey such strong messages. The viewers wonder whether they should peek at this curious “conversation”.
