森川蒼 プロフィール

大学にて英日翻訳を中心に学びましたが、日本語の音域と、品詞順序の差異に見られるような精神性は外国語へ変換が不可能と感じていました。水分を多用して顔料を余白に広げる日本画の技法は、周波数の主音域が高い英語の響きを視覚的に翻訳するのに最適で、日本語では補いきれない assertivenessを自在に表現しやすいと

So Morikawa  /  Profile

So Morikawa is a Japanese-style painter based in Nara.  
She started learning Japanese-style painting in 2015. 

She majored in Japanese-English translation as she always had a strong interest in its sound and the mental differences between them. She tries to visualise through her art the actual sound of English whose ambient range is much higher than Japanese and gracefulness that Japanese has. The glistening mineral pigment, she uses in her work which spreads out and smudges when she adds it to water, is the most suitable substance since it expresses both boldness and humbleness. 

As Japanese-style painting material has not only a long history but also the elements of modernity in its composition, she suggests Japanese-style painting as one of the ways to bridge the gap among any nation – not only linguistically but also mentally.
