書家のことば
時間は空間と共に刻一刻と流れて止まず、一瞬の現象は縁起の結果として転変する。
2015年5月のこと。リペルペーパー(合成紙)に墨を落としてスパイラルを描き始めた瞬間、スパイラルが生み出す一瞬の現象は、時空を孕む過去・現在・未来の堆積であると感得してそのワンカットを「断像」と名付けて以来、「断像」は私のライフワークとなりました。 

PURE SHODO シリーズ解説
小川移山のライフワーク、「断像」シリーズをお届けします。小川は1970年代から約50年間にわたって書家として活動しながら、その表現を現代アートへと広げているアーティストです。このシリーズの作品はすべてリペルペーパーという合成紙を支持体に、墨や岩絵具などを使用して制作されています。
「偶然と必然が一体になる。紙の上で液体が動き納得の現象が顕現する瞬間まで操作する。それは例えば歩いていて良い景色に出会った瞬間それに見入る、思考が止まる、その瞬間。それが欲しい。人間が何かに出会った瞬間の感動が」と語る小川の呼吸、リズム、自然、偶然性への理解は、深いところへ到達した作家ならではの世界と言えるでしょう。作品に対峙していると様々なイメージが喚起されます。構えず、理解しようとせず、わかっている範囲の外にあるものを感じていただけたら幸いです。

断像 "我" - 小川 移山
書家作品解説
The moment when I dripped the Sumi ink on the paper, it was complete, and no further work was required. Like a one cut by a sword. An instant encounter. Coincident and inevitable. A flow close to nature. Nature is better than artificial. A person stands. Pure ego is me and also you. There is no need to read characters, but people also say “reading paintings.” Keeping a balance between sensitivity and intelligence is fun.

断像 "地涌 007" - 小川 移山
書家作品解説
The title "Jiyu 地涌" is derived from the "Bodhisattvas of the Earth 地涌菩薩" as explained in the No. 15. of the Lotus Sutra. It is said that at the latter days of Buddhism, a group of people who believe the spirit of Buddha's "all people can attain Buddhahood" and act for the sake of self and others' well-being will appear from the underground.
This work was born in an encounter with the Repel Paper. Poured Sumi ink on paper. Continue the circular motion to move the liquid with a Sumi ink stick. A sequence of time and space and moments. It changes a moment to continuity. It is a harmony between paper and me as the creator. I listen to the paper's voice. The material matches my concept.

断像 "熱の行方 013" - 小川 移山
書家作品解説
A circle wraps all and a line separates. Enveloping people creates harmony and peace, and dividing people leads to border and conflict. So I put the circular motion on the base of my work because I see the absoluteness there. On top of that, there is relative change. The thought is reflected in the creation.
This work was born in an encounter with the Repel Paper. Poured Sumi ink on paper. Continue the circular movement to move the liquid with a Sumi ink stick. A sequence of time and space and moments. Every moment lasts forever. My heart shows through the changing phase on the paper. Named “Whereabouts of Heat”.

断像 "S-1 流転" - 小川 移山
書家作品解説
The liquid of Sumi ink and silver powder on the repel paper is mixed with each other by my fingers and move to show various figures. My fingers follow the figures as it changes. The work is finished for a moment of my satisfaction. The work flows. The same goes for life.
I didn't aim in this work as a calligraphy work, but when it was exhibited in our group exhibition at Kyukyodo in Ginza, one person commented, "This is indeed a calligraphy work.". For him, this work looked calligraphy.
