Comment
Rafi Haqueは多くの国際展に参加し活躍する作家です。日本に滞在した経験もあり、98年に広島を訪れた後に反戦をテーマにリトグラフやエッチングを制作しました。今回、Rafiの作品に再会できることは私自身大きな喜びです。繊細かつ大胆な色彩と深い洞察から生み出されるかたち。スパイスが豊かな美味しいカレーを食した後のような満足感を皆さんと共有できれば幸いです。

Rafi Haque has taken part in a number of International exhibits; he has also been to Hiroshima in 1998 where he made lithographs and etchings using anti-war themes. His work fill people’s hearts with its sensitive yet dynamic colour that is born from his deep insights. It is a great honour for me to be able to see his works again; I hope everybody viewing his works will feel the kind of satisfaction one gets from eating a plate full of delicious, spicy curry!
