Comment
ウラジミール(Vladimir )とは、ベルギーのゲントで逢いました。淡路島でアーティストインレジデンスの経験のある彼の木版画は、強固な技術に支えられた彫りと刷りの表情が、一種幻想的とすら見える西洋独特の精神性に裏付けられた世界観を醸し出しています。一目でその不思議な具象世界にひき寄せられました。

I met Vladimir in Ghent in Belgium. He had a residency at Awajishima in Japan where there is a tradition of dense carving and printing style His style of work and Western mentality applied to this tradition of printmaking art can be described as somewhat dreamy and fantastic. I was intrigued by such a mysterious embodiment in his world of art.
