Gyoji NomiyamaWestern-style PainterThe ocean is spreading in front of my eyes here. I have swam here since I was a child. The sandy beach extends to the right, and there are Shika Island ahead of that, Noko Island on the left side, and Hakata Bay hugging them.
Taken by my grandfather, I often walked around Dazaifu and Tofurō, and looked at the scenery of a terminal of the civilization that came from the mainland of China.
The wind blows from an invisible far site through a long route, and this blue sea bubbles. To draw my hometown for me is to form such a time flow that has been conveyed from my ancestors.
However, there is no need to see with the painter's thought. Painters often want to say their idioms. This is a transparent glass space which was made by imitating nature. Please pass this slowly.
