作家の石彫を特徴づける「割戻し」という技法でつくられた、うねる波のような造形。白く輝く石 素材のテクスチャーは、陽光の当たり方によって異なる表情を見せ、時に優しく、時に荒々しい、 珠洲の波や風を思わせる。高い空と広い海という大自然に囲まれても、どっしりと安定した石彫は圧倒的な存在感を感じさせる。


Through the acts of “breaking and reverting” that characterize Okumura’s stone sculptures, the textures of the dazzlingly white stone materials and their undulating forms appear gentle or wild, depending on how the sunlight falls on them, or how they are perceived through the eyes and hands. Perhaps they are in synch with the waves and wind of Suzu. Standing firm in its natural setting against the height of the sky and the vastness of the sea, the stone’s weighty, massive presence radiates strength as a gift from the earth, drawing the viewer’s gaze with its sense of stability.
