I like the word "look". When I touched the feeling of the air that things give off, such as a certain presence in the tranquility and the sex appeal that it produces, a sigh leaks, "Oh, that's wonderful."
When I am gathering with multiple people, I have a yearning for a beautiful person who has a strong presence but can be dismissed.

A few years ago, when I first saw a wood carving by Mr. Kobayashi Morrison, I felt that kind of atmosphere.

The shock and joy that Morrison's atelier is near my home!
There, Chiyo Takasato, Daisuke Nakamura and the 3 people preside over the "special source". Each artist activity, interior design and construction.

Morrison was in charge of store design at IDÉE for interior from 1995 to 1999. Speaking of IDÉE, I was a pioneer in terms of antiques as well as proposals for modern interiors, miscellaneous goods, and living with plants, so I used to go to shops on Kotto-dori in Aoyama since my twenties. .. That's exactly what Morrison did when he was still a member, but it's a treasure trove of inspiration, and I still remember that thrilling feeling.

"I have always liked Yasutake Funakoshi's sculpture, but the reason I started wood carving was the exhibition "Water Source" by Hideki Maekawa in 2008," Morrison said.
Maekawa-san, me tooI am a well-known writer, but he is an artist who spins the words born in himself and expresses a story reminiscent of myths with sculpture, and the reality and fantastic deep world view captivate the viewer.

“While I was busy with the interior work, I was anxious about hearing loss starting from my thirties and losing communication. When I was shaken by Maekawa-san's sculpture, this expression was the way to express. Then I thought the piece would speak for me."

Mr. Morrison started his career as an artist independently.
The first piece I carved was a ballerina that Mr. Takasato, who was active as an accessory writer, added to the display when performing an exhibition with a ballet theme. The ballerina that I carefully took out from the back and showed me was a calm and transparent appearance.

Mr. Morrison said that he continued to carve himself, such as actively participating in the wood carving workshop held by Mr. Maekawa, who he respects, that he could see himself by going through the process. I'm also able to manage the meeting, but I will ask myself again.

"I like wood carving, but I feel closer to myself."
"I will continue to work as a writer and whether the work I have done so far is being put to good use."

Oddly enough, I was invited to an exhibition on the theme of "symbiosis with nature, circulation of materials", and the metal that I had been touching for a long time in the interior work was linked to my favorite mountain climbing, leading to the "Botanicals" I am currently working on. It seems that

It looks like a plant itself, but it's all made of metalI'm surprised. A delicate piece of work that is cut out from a metal plate and colored with rock paint or rust.
"In the mountains, even the pretty plants can show off their vitality. It's like recording their memories."

Designer, craftsman, writer. It is really convincing that these three balances are Morrison's shape and voice.

Morrison, Takasato, and Nakamura's works are lined up in a special source space like the attic of a church in Europe. Mr. Takasato's role is the permanent space composition.
"I'm trying to connect everyone's work that came out in my way of understanding and make it my favorite."
“Yes, that's right,” says Morrison and Nakamura's deep nod (laughs), telling us that he has a great deal of trust in his sensitivity. Beautiful appearance Quiet strength Mr. Takasato himself was an accessory designer while he was making pictures, but he says that he was always looking for a direction for himself. "While working both as a designer and a writer, I couldn't help feeling that I was lying in the world of accessories."

Like Mr. Morrison, when I met Mr. Maekawa's sculpture, I was shocked and said, "What is important is Takasato started to think that there are not many. With more and more thought, "I want to live by focusing on drawing a single picture", a classmate from the Tama era, a good understanding person, pushed his back and took the helm to the path only for the painter. It was
I feel that the range of things to see and capture has widened. Now, "I have come to understand the outline of the art, and I know where I should walk," says Takasato, who quietly smiles. I saw an enviable beautiful appearance.

When he was a student studying interiors, he helped Morrison to work in metal, so he sympathized with Morrison's way of thinking and had a long relationship. After working for another company, he became a member of the special source independently, and he continues to create works while working on the store interior with Mr. Morrison.

Mr. Nakamura, who had been making dolls from scrap iron before he belonged to the special source, also participated in Mr. Maekawa's wood carving workshop to experience the real pleasure and pleasure of carving. The range of creation has been expanded, and the knots of trees are used as facial expressions to express creatures that are close to animals.
As Mr. Nakamura said, ``It will be a good finish when I enjoy making it,'' he said, there was a humorous charm that the children might start talking when the night went on. ..

Actually, I was nervous because of the special source with cool interior and expression.
However, it wasn't dexterous at all, and I felt some reassurance by seeing the three people who walked sincerely while searching. I wonder if it's dignified and the soft air is flowing.

Especially Takasato's work that stopped my foot for a long time. A mysterious flag like an aurora sways comfortably. It seems that the title was given by the writer, but the word "the future is always breezy" came to my mind. Ikki Iyuu, big and small, I have a life with many goals. It's not a strong wind or a headwind, and I'm kind of happy to think that there is a wind that accompanies each stage.

I presented this work to my son who became an examinee and tended to be a little naive.
And when I am dented, I look at it and get an ale.
