When I visited a cafe last year, I was attracted to the postcards lined up at the counter.
It is a modern landscape painting of bright colors. Although the depiction is simple, he feels light, smells of soil and grass, sounds of unpainted characters, birds and insects, and it is engulfed in the air in the scenery in an instant.
You will be drawn into the world of postcard-sized pictures! I was moved and bought some kinds of cards and returned.
It is usually the place to find out the name of the writer, but it was more important for me to soak in the comfort than when I drew it.

Well, almost a year after that, when I was surfing the net, a picture that came into sight by accident.

"Well, there is something that leads to the card I have ..."

And I knew for the first time that it was a picture of Masahiro Uchida. Mr. Uchida is 96 years old!

I also understand that Kamakura has his art gallery, and I have to go there! And hurry good.

The nearest station of the gallery is Edoden's "Hase" station. It's almost a car if you go to Kamakura or Shonan area,In fact, it is also the first experience of riding Enoden.
While touching the loose charm of a local line with over 100 years of history, I think about the gallery to visit, and I feel a little nervous.
Because it also serves as an atelier, you may see the teacher.

A modern white building within a minute's walk of the station. It is called "Gallery of Kamakura Kokoro". The Ichibankan at that corner is the "Masayasu Uchida Memorial Art Gallery".
As soon as you get inside, the impact of bright coloration. If you look at it one by one, the landscape with the golden ears, the red-toned landscape with a red leaf, and those landscapes just make you feel the fall.
One of the reasons I am attracted is the bold distribution of sky and rice fields where more than half of the screen is empty. It is very modern.

Uchida-sensei's work was not noticed in the postcard, but it is actually "Hari-e".
The nuances of depth and texture due to the overlapping colors combine with the picture, and the five senses of the viewer begin to work and it is engulfed in a more bodily sensation.

Mr. Hikaru, Mr. Uchida's son and his wife, managed the gallery and explained them carefully. Unfortunately the teacher is absent .

In the case of a painting, a soft line makes a facial expression, so it is possible to cut a paper by hand and stick it with glue, without using scissors. More than 100 types of paper with different color tone and thickness are aligned. It seems that it is still the vividness of the color that sticks to paper. The texture of Japanese paper also has a taste, but the light nuances such as light color and fuzz when broken are not the expression that they are seeking. And I was established the world of "Hari-e", not a chigiri picture or a cut picture.
Before being applied, the crumpled and wrinkled paper partially absorbs the ink, creating shadows, and the texture of the rock is visible. In addition, the nuances that are not on the paper in hand are likely to put an expression on the brush before pasting.

Uchida's main business was a graphic designer. When I was in my thirties, I had a request from Yokohama City, where I live, to teach the general arts at an adult school (now culture school). After thinking about it without a budget, and cutting the newspaper and showing its shape, it is said that after that, the teacher himself was going to find a way to express the original scenery of Japan with “Hari-e”. Actually, "Asage" and "Yuge" of instant miso soup that we also know well are representative works of teachers. Oh, I have been touching the teacher's picture since I was little!

If you hear such a story, how! A teacher who woke up from a nap took me downstairs for production !! Modern, airy figure.

After saying "Welcome", "There are autumn leaves in Japan as well as in Japan, and everyone is impressed by the beauty. It is delicate sensitivity.
The earth is one of the scraps of the universe, and the human being is only one of the microorganisms there. What does the human feel in Mother Nature? I have drawn various landscapes for many years, but by drawing on that emotion, I continue to convey the sensibility that I can not forget to my children and their future generations. "

The teacher is strong and keeps the words.

"For example, when it suddenly becomes dark on a large stage filled with tens of thousands, everyone tears down when only one light is finally given. Why is that? What is there? It is the feeling that the bodily sensation catches. "

Then I stare at my face and say, "I will do my best, too". That's right, the teacher was in the atelier.

The colors are beautiful, the scenery is beautiful, and it is not such a simple thing, but it touches the deeper parts of our roots and brings out the important sense.
The sensibility that I caught in the bodily sensation of something up to now. Even though I usually forget, I access the memory for an instant. It was the moment I understood why I was attracted to the teacher's postcard.
The teacher's picture, which is delicate and dynamic, really does not make the viewers get bored forever.
Common to the work of becoming 900 pieces is the place of the heart. Kindness overflowed from the teacher's paintings.
Here, we take care of the four seasons and change the exhibition once every two months.

"Even in autumn, early autumn and late autumn are different. Four seasons are not simply four," said Mr. Hikari.

It's a daily routine that tends to get caughtIt is a gallery that you want to visit again and again to reconfirm your axis.
