when you wish upon a star

watercolor, 16.14 × 12.2 inches, 2020
(without frame)

2020年ほど、幾多の星を祈るように眺めたことがあっただろうか…
同時に、今まで当たり前の日常のありがたみを強く感じたことがあっただろうか…
アーティストhirohiroは、生かされていることへの感謝を忘れない。
「When you wish upon star」(2020)という作品は、夜空をアルシュ紙の上に、その時々、強くときめいた水彩絵具たちをレイヤーで表現し、天の川のキラキラとした質感は、水彩絵具とアクリル絵具のシルバーやメタリックホワイトでスパッタリングで表現している。そして最後に、彼女は一瞬の流星に願いを込める。
「地球が平和でありますように…」と。



Has there been any other year, other than 2020, where you saw and prayed for the many stars?
At the same time, have you ever felt the gratitude for everyday life?
Artist hirohiro never forgets to be thankful for being alive.
The artwork, “When you wish upon star” (2020)has the night sky on Arches paper and expresses the sometimes strongly sparkling watercolor inks with layers. The sparkling Milky Way is expressed by sputtering silver and metallic white watercolor and acrylic paint. Lastly, she makes a wish on the shooting star.
“May the earth be peaceful…”

Smile

pastel, colored pencils, 14.49 × 18.62 inches, 2018
$500 (with frame)

あらわれてくれてありがとう。真っ白な紙に、まっさらな心。
ソフトパステルを指で優しくくるくるなでる。
無になる瞬間の心地良さ。パステルの濃淡と空白に、何が見えるだろう。
この世は一時たりともとどまっていない。常に移ろっている。
今というこの時間も、過ぎてしまえば二度と戻ってこない。
たった一度きり。その一瞬一瞬を大切に。
心に湧き出た一瞬の思いを大切に。
あらわれた笑顔の天使に、思わず微笑みを返す。
あらわれてくれてありがとう。
“Smile”(2018)by hirohiro

Thank you for appearing. A pure heart on a white paper.
Gently swirling the soft pastel with fingers.
The comfort of the moment of nothingness. What do you see in the shades and white space of pastel?
This world has never stopped. It is constantly changing.
This time right now will never come back when it passes.
Only once. Cherish every moment.
Cherish the momentary thoughts that spring up in your heart.
Without thinking, a smile is returned to the smiling angel who appears.
Thank you for appearing.

a mirror of the mind

acrylic, 18.15 × 22.91 inches, 2018
$300 (with frame)

瞑想をすると心が無になっていく。
目の前には、真っ白な一枚の紙と水とアクリル絵具がある。
ときめく彩に導かれ、ブルーの世界は大好きなイルカたちとペガサス。
大きな流れに身をゆだねよう、大好きなものたちとともに。
ありのままで大丈夫だよ。絵は心の鏡、心の中を映す鏡。
その時々のメッセージを受け取る。あらわれてきてくれてありがとう。
メッセージをありがとう。
“a mirror of the mind”(2018) By hirohiro

When you meditate, you empty your heart.
In front is a piece of purely white paper, water, and acrylic paint.
Guided by the fluttering colors, the endearing dolphins and pegasus in the blue world.
Let us yield to the big flow, with the things we love.
It is okay to be as it is. The art is the mirror of the heart, a mirror that reflects the inside of the heart.
To receive the message from time to time. Thank you for appearing.
Thank you for the message.

幻の鳥、ケツァール。Sunlight(2019)は、アルシュ紙の上に水彩絵具で表現した。

朝の木漏れ日の中に、幻の鳥、ケツァール。風の音、森林のかおり。記憶が蘇る。
ほら、ケツァールの囀りが聴こえてきた。

The legendary bird, Quetzal. “Sunlight”(2019)is expressed with watercolor ink on Arches paper.
There, the morning dew twinkles with the fresh green leaves under the early morning sunlight.
The scene that artist hirohiro felt in her heart, goes around the body and is invisible to the eye, yet remains in the bottom of her memory.
In the morning sunlight filtering through the trees, the legendary bird, Quetzal. The sound of the wind, the scent of the forest. The memory comes back.
See, you could hear the singing of Quetzal.

Angel road(2019)引き潮の時だけ海の中から現れるという神秘的でロマンティックな道。
大切な人と手をつないで渡ると、砂州の真ん中で天使が舞い降りてきて、願いを叶えてくれると言われている。
瀬戸内海の穏やかな自然と空の雲の隙間から降りてくる天使の柱。幻想的な風景をwet in wet とグリザイユで表現している。
紙は、アルシュ。mellowな世界観で、あなたの記憶も蘇るに違いない。

“Angel road”(2019)is a sacred and romantic road that appears from the sea during low tide.
It is said that if you hold hands and cross it with your loved one, an angel will come down from the middle of the sand bank to grant your wish.
The pillar of angels descending from the gap between the calm nature of the Seto Inland Sea and the clouds in the sky. The mesmerizing landscape is expressed with wet in wet and grisaille.
The paper is Arches. A mellow view of the world will surely bring back your memory.

Autumn whisper

watercolor, 18.15 × 22.91 inches, 2019
$500 (with frame)

私には、あるメロディーがずっと巡っている。
リチャード・クレイダーマン氏のピアノ曲、日本語タイトル「秋のささやき」である。
頬につたわる晩秋のひんやりとした風、澄んだ空に個性的な雲たちや、枯れ葉の舞う音。
そんなノスタルジックな昼下がりの少し物哀しい空気感を、ウォーターフォード紙の上にグリザイユで表現したのがAutumn whisper(2019)である。
タイムスリップしたような懐かしい記憶が蘇る。このメロディーを聴きながら、この絵を感じてほしい。

I have a melody playing all the time.
Richard Clayderman’s piano song, the Japanese title being “The Whisper of Fall.”
The cool late autumn breeze touches the cheeks, the unique clouds in the calm sky, and the sound of the foliages flying around.
Such a nostalgic feeling of a little sad afternoon, “Autumn whisper”(2019)expresses such nostalgic feelings of a slightly sad afternoon with grisaille on Waterford paper.
A nostalgic memory that makes you feel like you have slipped back in time. I hope you feel this artwork while listening to this melody.

in the fantasy

watercolor, 22.91 × 18.15 inches, 2020
$700 (with frame)

香川県小豆島八十八ヶ所霊場の1つ、宝生院の境内に真柏(シンパク)の大樹は、応神天皇の手植えによるものと伝えられ、樹齢は1500年以上だといわれている。
そして、幹の周囲が16.6mもあるその雄大な姿からは、悠久の歴史が感じられる。
その大樹に想いをよせ、精霊たちに畏敬の念を抱きながらアーティストhirohiroは水彩絵具でIn the fantasy(2020)を表現した。
wet in wetでときめく彩に導かれながらのLayered。
彩と水と空気の一期一会を楽しむ。
仕上げにスパッタリングで光を残した。「これからもずっと地球をお守りください」と願いながら。


One of the 88 sacred places of Shodoshima, Kagawa Prefecture, the large tree of Shinpaku in the precincts of Hoshoin, is said to have been planted by Emperor Ojin and has been standing for over 1500 years.
From its magnificent figure with a trunk circumference of 16.6m, you can feel the eternal history.
Giving thoughts to the big tree and in respect to the spirits, artist hirohiro expressed “in the fantasy”(2020)with watercolors.
Layered while being guided by the fluttering color of wet in wet.
Finishing touches of the light left by sputtering. With the wish to “please continue protecting the earth.”

hirohiro

Like time traveling into a mysterious world…
Like remembering the child-like mind…
A gentle, calm and benevolent world full of endless transparency.
Healing magic is Immersing your heart in water, and experiencing the once-in-a-lifetime chance of the heart fluttering in color.
As it is, and always natural.
She was born in Hiroshima prefecture, where the sea breeze can be felt from the Seto Inland sea.
She loved music and dance, and graduated from a music school.
As time passed, she encountered fate when she came across drawing.
“Now that I think about it, when I was a kid, I wanted to learn art.”
The comfort of clearing one’s mind.
A delicate antenna and melody circulated her head, as she saw colors more than others, a synesthesia.
Gently getting close to your heart. With love and gratitude.

She has participated in the 2020 Hiroshima WEB public art exhibition, 2020 Cocokara japan ART, and the 2020 JIWI Autumn Masterpieces Exhibition.
Awarded the NET exhibition award and so on.
