Comment
ウェインさんの作品は、和紙の紙肌の中に沈み込んだ絵具が再び浮かび上がり、奇妙で暖かな人型を作っている。大地に沢山の白く細い根を張る植物のような人型は、原初の祭礼におかれた崇拝の対象としての偶像とも、紋章とも見え、私たちがいつか土に還って行くことを静かに示してくれる。

Wayne Crothers is able to draw mysterious and warm human figures with floating paints that soak through the Japanese paper. Though a figure looks as if it is a thin white plant rooted in the earth, it also appears as a symbol of creation and as something to be worshipped.
