Tamiko Tominaga

 

 

Tamiko Tominaga depicts the instability in human relationships as well as existence in this world. The figures in her paintings are always caught in a passionate moment, but it never seems as though it is truly heated. There is a certain distance between the artist and the subjects she paints, and this distance is what draws viewers to observe the paintings more. If the artist was more drawn into what the figures in the paintings are doing, the painting itself would leave no room for viewers to reflect themselves.

.Another strong element of her paintings is the vibrant colors which spread around the bodies of her subjects like a life energy. This can be accredited to Tomiko’s life dedication in practicing yoga. Her observation of the human body while practicing yoga has given her perspective of how vibrating energy fields can be created around a person.

   

 

 

 

男女の姿をモチーフに人間の関係性について描く富永の世界。観賞者はまずその鮮やかな色彩の渦に圧倒される。関係性というものが持つ不安定さ、あるいは人間という存在の不安定さが人体を構成する小さな破片の集まりにみられる。男女の関係性を超えて存在の儚さ・危うさを感じさせるのだがそれと同時にその色彩は生きている人の貪欲なまでのエネルギーがほとばしるようである。ヨガを教える程の腕を持ち人体を探求した富永だからこそ描ける人体に潜むエネルギー粒子というようなものを感じさせるバイブレーションがそこには存在する。
