Comment
Jake Muirhead氏の作品は銅版と対話するように制作されており、繊細さと優しさ、そして大胆さを感じます。主なモチーフである植物の形態への探究心と躍動感のバランスが素晴らしく、また表現に応じて技法を自在に使いこなすことが出来るのは、技術に裏打ちされたものだと思います。

Jake Muirhead makes dialogues through his works from the copperplate. His works show boldness and a soft, delicate kindness. His spirit of inquiry into the shapes of plants is the main theme of his work, and his ability to use many different techniques according to different expressions are the proof of his excellent technical skills and artistic integrity.
