Aya Abe’s “Dream Together” (2021) is created on washi (Japanese paper) with techniques to position the powder of crushed natural and artificial rocks and naturally dyed soils with nikawa. Used by Hokusai and Jakuchu Ito, nikawa was a commonly used glue in Japanese paintings during the Edo period. At times, she uses metal foils and silver foils in her paintings. When painting a single color, she puts the colored powder on a paint plate, pours the same amount of nikawa glue, and kneads it with her finger. It is a time consuming process, but the layered texture of the nikawa artwork creates a pictorial space that cannot be produced with any other medium. The artwork also changes depending on the amount of light and the viewing angle.

Aya Abeの作品 「Dream Together」2021 は、和紙に天然及び人造岩石を粉砕した粉や植物染料で染めた土などを膠で定着させる技法で描かれており、葛飾北斎も伊藤若冲も使用していたという膠は、江戸時代以前の日本の絵画に一般的に使われていた接着剤である。又時に金箔や銀箔など金属箔を用いることもある。一つの色を塗ろうとする時、絵の具皿に色の粉を出し同量の膠を注いで指で練る。手間暇がかかる作業で、そうして塗り重ねられた膠絵の絵肌は他のメディウムでは出せない絵画空間を醸し出し、光量や見る角度による変化を楽しむことが出来る。
