パーテーションの曇りを拭う/Wipe the fogging off the partitions

視覚的に見えることと、「分かる」ことは別だ。

第一印象が大事とも言うし、見た目だけで判断するなとも言う。

LGBTq+や女性、生まれつき茶髪の人を始めとしたマイノリティも、見た目だけで判断されたり、あるいは見た目だけで判断できるように望んでもいない方向に外見を強要されたりする。

しかし最近ではその見た目すらもマスクやパーテーション、画面などで遮られることが多い。

そこでこのシリーズでは「改めて目の前の人物と対話をする」を目標に、覆われたフィルターを拭い去るように、下絵を一度ipadに取り込み、デジタルで塗りつぶし→消しゴムツールで日常を送る人物像を掘り起こすという作業をし、それをキャンバス上に再現する方法で制作している。

Being able to see visually is not the same thing as being able to "understand."

It is often said that "first impressions count" and "don't judge a person by his looks."

Minorities, such as LGBTq+, women, and people with different skin and hair colors, are also judged based on appearance alone, or forced in unwanted directions to be judged bassed on appearance alone.

But these days, that appearance is often blocked by masks, partitions, and screens.

Therefore, in this series, with the goal of having a new dialogue with the person in front of him, Miyabi creates paintings that wipes away the filter that covers it.

Specifically, he takes a rough sketch onto his iPad, digitally fills in the images, and then uses the eraser tool to dig out the figure, which he then reproduces on the canvas.
