Comment
ジュハリ氏と会ったのは約20年前のパリでした。以来、お互いに音信不通でしたが、昨年に彼の東京での個展で再会。マレーシアを代表する現代作家になっていました。彼の作品は彫刻でも版画でもマレーシアの密林を思わせる強い生命力と、知的に計算されたダイナミックな構成が特徴です。

I met Juhari 20 years ago in Paris. We hadn’t been in touch since then but we met again at his solo exhibition in Tokyo. Now he is a leading artist in Malaysia. His works, either in carving or printmaking, have an intelligently calculated dynamic composition, which conveys the essence of life force in the Malaysian jungle.
