Yoshinori Akazawa (1971 - Kyoto Japon)

 My first impression of Akazawa was that he was very modest and gentle. When I met him at his atelier in Kyoto, he spoke little but with great thought behind each word.

Hailing from an artesan family where his father is currently the 4th Roseki Akazawa, it seemed befitting that he would pursue a career in the arts. Akazawa studied Japanese Painting (Nihonga) at Kyoto City University of Arts, one of Japan’s oldest and most traditional art university. After his graduation in 1995, he continued his studies in ceramics at Kyoto Municipal Institute of Industrial Research.

In 1999, he held his first solo exhibition in Kyoto exhibiting the Nightscape夜 景series. He worked on them upon return from a trip to India. Back in Kyoto, he was again reminded of how beautiful the Japanese nightscape was and set out to work on the series.

 

People’s Night and Moon
人々の夜と月 (1993)

Arguably one of his best works, People’s Night and Moon人々の夜と月 (1993) depicts places and things close to his heart- the schools he studied in, friends’ houses where he hung out at, shrines and mountains that have been drawn from his hometown in Kyoto. The work is a remarkable comment on the harmonious relationship between nature seen through the vast expanse of sky and mountains and the sprawling urban landscape. Street lights lead you into the background and along the length of the painting, ever so subtly yet assertively reminding us what is man-made and what is from nature. When I saw this work, I felt the harmony that has managed to co-exist so well, particularly in the Japan that I know and now miss. In 2005, the artwork was featured on the cover of Plato’s Cosmology and Its Ethical Dimensions by Dr. Gabriela Carone. On the work, she commented, ”I was struck by the intensity and depth of the painting. It seemed to capture the cosmic dimension and its integration with the human sphere very powerfully. “
