About The Artwork

Dear Nature Lovers, How are you doing? This time I painted my hometown of Mt. Tanzawa. Japanese title of “The landscape of Tanzawa” is 丹沢原風景. A Japanese pottery Kenkichi Tomimoto (1886-1963) painted Soshigaya landscape on his jar. *Soshigaya is a place name in Tokyo and about 12 km away from the Shinjuku Station. Soshigaya today is a residence area with a shopping street. The potter Tomimoto painted the nature of Soshigaya that was the original landscape. By looking at his work, I was aware that even this downtown used to have beautiful nature and felt nostalgia. On this painting, I painted the current Mt. Tanzawa viewing from the Odakyu train between the Isehara station and the Tsurumaki Onsen station. Since the Odakyu line and the Isehara city have decided to make a new station here, this landscape will be gone in the future. I wanted to leave this view as a painting. Everything changes, however, losing beautiful nature would be like losing something important… p.s, The vest rice field along Odakyu Odawara line can be seen only from here. Love❤️ Yu ——日本語—— 陶芸家の富本憲吉(1886-1963)が自身で作った壺に祖師谷風景を描いているのを見て、今の住宅地である祖師谷とは違い、昔は祖師谷にも自然があったのだと作品を見て気が付きました。 今回描いた絵では小田急線の伊勢原駅と鶴巻温泉駅から見える丹沢の風景を描きました。小田急線と伊勢原市がこの豊かな田んぼの上に新しい駅を建てると決め、この美しい原風景がいずれなくなることを知り、絵に残しておきたいと思いました。見た方にもこの風景を少しでも覚えていていただけたら嬉しく思います。
