Comment
“私はメゾチント技法で仏教学の幸福、孤独、精神集中を表現した”と作者は語っているが、私が注目したのはメゾチントならではの黒の空間(色面)である。この黒は闇なのか、はたまた…浮遊する植物たちは様々に泳ぎ廻る。本作品は第8回高知国際版画トリエンナーレの大賞作品である。

Boonmee Sanghum stated: “I expressed the Buddhist philosophy of happiness, solitude, and mental concentration” however I paid attention to the black, shadowy spaces on the screens created by the mezzotint method. Things that look like Plants swim and dance around the print surface. This work received the grand prize in the 8th Kochi International Prints Triennial; furthermore, one of the pieces from the same series received another grand prize in the third Bangkok International Prints Triennial this year. I took part in the judgement in both Triennials.
