- プロフィール / Profile
- すがわらじゅんいち（現代美術家） / SUGAWARA Junichi (Contemporary artist)
Creating installations that combine both two-dimensional and three-dimensional objects, SUGAWARA’s artworks express and channels thoughts of what the future holds for his community. He finds inspiration and courage from the hearts of bereaved families and disaster victims, and produces work based on these.
髙橋勉（洋画家） / TAKAHASHI Tsutomu (“Yohga” painter, specializes in Western-style painting)
Hailing from Shichigahama Town in MIYAGI Prefecture, a place affected by the earthquake. His paintings depict a story in which life sprouts from an empty land devoid of life. People and animals travel to a land of hope.
村山耕二（ガラス作家）/ MURAYAMA Koji (glass artist)
As part of his long-term project to “melt the earth” by collecting all kinds of sand from around the world, he collects sea sand from the disaster-stricken towns of Minamisanriku and Shichigahama and melting them into glass. This creative process symbolizes his intention to enclose the memories of the land by converting them into this material.
