Hasuwa Tomoko 蓮輪友子

19th-century Impressionist artists Monet, Renoir, Cézanne, Gauguin, and Van Gogh would venture from their studios in pursuit of light, capturing raw intuitive impressions with swift brush strokes. In the same way, French Impressionist composer Claude Debussy ‘s piano pieces could transform light into the endlessly diverse changing sounds of nature. Within his varied cords, we can embrace the mystery of a higher creator. To Japanese artist Tomoko Hasuwa, light is an unspoken language, pieced together to flicker in the hippocampus. Viewed through the prism of the heart, radiant colors burst out freely, refracting traces of life using different spectrums.

Debussy found inspiration from Impressionist paintings, freeing himself from the elegant melodies and complete forms demanded by Baroque, Classical, and Romantic musical styles, seeking instead a “colorful impressionism” to create a hazy, poetic atmosphere. His well-known piano solo piece “Clair de lune” uses minimalist melodies to create layering, bringing intoxicating moonlight and a quiet silver brilliance into the minds of listeners.

A careful enjoyment of Tomoko Hasuwa’s works will reveal hints of music. Always varied and filled with musicality, they rush about in waves, manifest themselves as tranquil lakes, and dance about in graceful minuet. She has devoted herself to capturing the sensation of shifting light through painting, abandoning the constraints of outline and detail to depict moving images. Using abstract and surreal colors to depict traces of light, viewers find themselves in a dreamlike world. Bold and unrestrained brush strokes, ambiguous form, nebulous light and shadow – all come together in an expressive Andante, in which people and objects are revitalized by the power of light.

Photography may be unparalleled in its ability to replicate appearance nearly perfectly, but the beauty of painting comes from the depiction of essence; finding that which the camera can never capture. Tomoko Hasuwa makes full use of the medium’s strengths and limitations, choosing not to use still photographs as reference material, and avoiding delineated compositional lines. She begins a composition by playing self-made videos on loop, absorbing the constantly changing images with her own eyes, piecing them together in a creative effect that might be described as “afterimages”. Some of her works are partial segments of a scene, while others are memory fragments or fleeting pieces of life. Viewers are given the opportunity to use their own visual senses to reconcile the colors, encouraged to find the resonating light in their own lives.

在19世紀印象派畫家莫內、雷諾瓦、塞尚、高更、梵谷的彩筆下,「光」引領他們走出畫室,以快速的筆觸,將所見事物的直觀印象如實描繪下來;在法國印象樂派作曲家德布西的琴鍵上,「光」幻化為大自然瞬息萬變所產生的聲響,在和弦曲式的變奏中,感受造物者的神奇奧秘;對日本藝術家蓮輪友子來說,「光」是無聲的語言,是記憶的海馬迴忽隱忽現的動態剪接,透過心中的水晶稜鏡,閃耀出如虹般的七彩,對應當下的心情,折射出不同光譜的生命軌跡。

如同作曲家德布西受到印象派畫作的啟發,音樂風格跳脫巴洛克、古典、浪漫樂派向來講究的優美旋律或完整曲式,轉而追求聲音的「色彩印象」,創造出朦朧迷離的詩性氛圍。其著名的鋼琴獨奏曲《月光》,以極簡旋律描繪出層次,彷彿看見醉人的月光,像泛銀般地在大地上灑下清幽的光輝。仔細聆賞藝術家蓮輪友子的畫,彷彿有音符在躍動。時而如浪般流瀉而下,有時似一片寧靜的心湖,有些又像高貴優雅的小步舞曲,充滿律動感及音樂性。她潛心捕捉光影變化每一瞬間的真實感受,摒棄了細節形體的勾勒,將動態的影像以平面媒材重現,並以抽象的、超現實的色彩呈現光影的軌跡,予人如夢似幻的感受。奔放的筆觸、朦朧的光影與曖昧不明的形體,宛如一首富有表情的行板,人與物在光影的照拂下,波光粼粼、充滿生機。

攝影可以完美複製表像,而繪畫的優勢就在於呈現本質,而且要畫出相機拍不出來的精神世界。蓮輪友子深知這個道理,她不像多數畫家選擇靜態的照片作為臨摹素材,也不強調構圖線條的精準度。她作畫時,會先用電腦循環播放自己拍攝的動態錄像,透過自己的肉眼捕捉,將動態影像的局部拆解下來,形成一系列的「連作」,產生類似殘影(視覺暫留)的效果。有些是擷取景物局部,有些是記憶碎片或生活中的浮光掠影,讓觀者憑自己的視覺來調和其他色彩,進而對應自身的生命光譜,找到似曾相識的感動。
