赤錆と緑青によって全身を覆われた偉容な雰囲気を放つダルマ。
なにげなくそこに佇む姿に魅了され、生い立ちを知ったことをきっかけに「祈願」するダルマではなく、「共成(共に成長する)」ダルマを目指した。


ダルマのモデルとなった人物である菩提達磨(達磨大師、菩提多羅)。
達磨の人生は成功一辺倒かと思いきや七転び八起きの言葉の通り、人並外れた苦難を強いられていた。結果や実績が取り上げられることが多いが、水面下で成し遂げてきた事実に目を傾けると絶望に立ち向かい、抗う姿が目に浮かぶ。そこから成功の要因の1つとして周りの人々や環境との共存と成長が
大きく関係していると考えた。


彼の紆余曲折あった人生を実験家として私だからこそできる技術での表現として2種の金属を張り子のキャンパスに被せることにした。本来、金属は溶かして混ぜると合金として別の存在としてその姿を変えてしまうが、漆喰に金属粉を混ぜ込み、流動体の金属マテリアルを実現。時間とともに発生する緑青は保護被膜として腐食から身を守る役割を成す。これは本人の意思である防衛本能を表し、放出する念を持つ。腐食の進行によって発生する赤錆は社会や人間関係、生活環境における厄難を表す。作者の手により、自然界において共存することのない双方を1つの枠に収める。


そこには生育・変化する金属の必然性、人間の欲求・葛藤を絢い交ぜさせることで魅入る美の価値を創出する。


ダルマ対峙したとき、自分もいつもより少し頑張ろうと思える。
目標に向かって一緒に進むことのできる共成するダルマです。

A Dharma doll with a majestic atmosphere, covered with red rust and greenish blue.
I was fascinated by the figure standing there casually, and when I learned about his background, I aimed to create a dharma that "grows together" rather than one that prays.


Bodhidharma (Daruma Daishi, Bodhidharma) was the model for Dharma.
It seemed that Daruma's life was all about success, but as the saying goes, "Seven falls, eight rises," he had to endure extraordinary hardships. Most of the time, people focus on his results and achievements, but if you look at the facts of what he has accomplished under the surface, you will see how he has faced despair and fought against it. From this, I realized that one of the factors for success is the coexistence and growth with the people and environment around you.
and growth with the people and environment around him.


I decided to cover the papier-mâché campus with two types of metal as an expression of the twists and turns in his life that only I, as an experimentalist, could create. Originally, when metals are melted and mixed together, they change their appearance as an alloy, but I mixed metal powder with plaster to create a fluid metallic material. The greenish-blue color that develops over time acts as a protective coating to protect against corrosion. The greenish-blue color that develops over time serves as a protective coating to protect against corrosion. The red rust that occurs as the corrosion progresses represents bad luck in society, human relationships, and living environment. In the artist's hands, both sides, which cannot coexist in nature, are put into one frame.


By mixing the inevitability of metals that grow and change with the desires and conflicts of human beings, he creates a value of beauty that fascinates.


When I confront Dharma, I feel that I can try a little harder than usual.
It is a Dharma that will help you reach your goals together.
