『Power of words』( 2016 ) は、日本古来の「いろは歌」を題材として、平仮名47文字と唇模様で構成された2枚1組の作品である。アーティストの yushi sato が象形文字から発展した現代文字が、ケータイ文化の絵文字に回帰していく現象に着目し、文字の形自体を絵と捉え直すことを試みたことで生まれた。文字と模様の二重構造の画面は、色インクとペンを使用し、細やかな線の重なりのみで描かれ、「いろは歌」の無常観が言葉として囁かれる様を、繊細かつデザイン的要素を用いて表現している。そして、日本古来の言霊と文字の形に宿る力を再認識して欲しいという願いが込められている。

“Power of words” is a set of two artworks consisting of 47 characters and lip patterns based on the ancient Japanese “Iroha song.” Artist, yushi sato, focused on the development of hieroglyphs to modern words and the return of pictograms in the mobile phone culture to create artworks that reinterpret the shape of letters. The double-structured screen with letters and patterns uses colored ink and pen and is only drawn with overlapping fine lines. The impermanence of the “iroha song” is whispered as words and expressed with delicate design elements. It also contains the wish to reaffirm the power of ancient Japanese kotodama and the shape of letters.

yushi sato

yushi sato was born in 1977 in Saitama Prefecture. After working at a flower shop, she began her freelance illustrator career and has been creating illustrations and mangas for books, magazines, and websites, as well as being an artist on the side.

She has presented her works at several overseas exhibitions such as the Reddot Art Fair in Miami (2013) and Affordable Art Fair in London (2016).

In 2005, she co-authored and published the illustration essay book, “タイは今日も海色” (Even today, Thailand is ocean-colored). She experienced moving often during her childhood.

She realized the joy of connecting and interacting with people and places through her art expressions. Through her theme that people are not lonely and all lives are connected, influenced and harmonious, she weaves together and draws each individual shape of life and its uniqueness.

She also focuses on the common knowledge surrounding race, language, time, and space and patterns that have remained around the world since ancient times. She creates with the certainty that drawing a shape is a prayer for everything.

She expresses with various materials, but mainly uses acrylic. Recently, she has been experimenting with semi-dimensional expressions in order to pursue “art as nature” that blends into the living space.
