Japan art and Mount Fuji: Suzuki Kiitsu in color by Sawako Utsumi and the flow of Sakai Hōitsu

 

Japan art and Mount Fuji: Suzuki Kiitsu in color by Sawako Utsumi and the flow of Sakai Hōitsu

The Japanese contemporary artist, Sawako Utsumi, once more produces an adorable art piece based on rinpa (rimpa). In the past, Utsumi heavily focused on Sakai Hōitsu (1761-1828) in relation to rinpa. However, in her latest art piece, the emphasis is on Suzuki Kiitsu (1796-1858). Despite this, and in the knowledge that Hōitsu taught the young Kiitsu before passing away from this world, Utsumi fuses aspects of both but based on her own unique personal artistic traits.

In the art piece titled “Suzuki Kiitsu in color by Sawako Utsumi and the flow of Sakai Hōitsu”, she fuses aspects of Kiitsu (original by Kiitsu below) with Hōitsu based on the mountain landscape. Equally, Utsumi utilizes her own independent color scheme of “Hōitsu through the eyes of modernity turned backward,” when completing “Suzuki Kiitsu in color by Sawako Utsumi and the flow of Sakai Hōitsu” by giving the impression of a natural linkage.

However, in truth, the color scheme and landscape linkage are based on the intricacy of Utsumi who adores many angles to Japanese and European art. This results in the trick of the imagination because both originals are more distant toward each other. Therefore, the creativity and imagination of Utsumi are based on her personal artistic qualities – and the fact that she bases trust on her non-artistic mentor who fuses his personal psychological angle.

Utsumi’s rinpa and the cultural angle is ignited by the richness of high culture that flourished in Kamakura, Koyasan, Kyoto, Nara, Nikko, and other areas over many centuries. Hence, the lore of old Japan, the Meiji Era, and aspects of European art dwell within the artistic spirit of Utsumi. Similarly, her independent landscapes belie more than what the eye can see.

Overall, with Mount Fuji being central to her latest art piece, it is important to focus on both “Hōitsu through the eyes of modernity turned backward” and “Suzuki Kiitsu in color by Sawako Utsumi and the flow of Sakai Hōitsu.” By doing so, the fusions of Hōitsu and Kiitsu are clearly noticeable. Likewise, the independent spirit of Utsumi and her mentor can be felt through the color scheme and the bigger picture that exists outside the limitations of words. Therefore, another adorable art piece can be viewed in isolation – in relation to linkage – in relation to fusions – and based on the psychological undertones that speak no words.

Japan art and stunning angle to Sakai Hōitsu who belongs to the Edo Period by Sawako Utsumi

Japan art and stunning angle to Sakai Hōitsu who belongs to the Edo Period by Sawako Utsumi

In the latest art piece by Sawako Utsumi, this contemporary artist focuses on the rinpa (rimpa) finesse of Sakai Hōitsu (1761-1828). Hōitsu, himself, adored Ogata Kōrin (1658-1716) and in time he revitalized the memory of Kōrin. This, in turn, brought Kōrin to a new generation of artists in Japan. Hence, Utsumi respects many classical artists belonging to the Edo Period.

Utsumi’s latest art piece titled “Hōitsu through the eyes of modernity turned backward” is extremely stunning. This applies to her individual style of color that focuses on the original by Hōitsu (original by Hōitsu below) but through the emphasis of modernity. Yet, in Utsumi’s version of modernity, it is a connection with the rich high culture of Japan.

Ironically, the yearning of the past, albeit the cultural past that ignited Kamakura, Koyasan, Kyoto, Nara, Nikko, and others areas of high culture and religious learning; is equally shared by Utsumi who hopes that continuity will also bless a new generation in modern Japan. This passion can be felt in her latest art piece titled “Hōitsu through the eyes of modernity turned backward,”

In a past article, I state, Utsumi isn’t restrained by time and different approaches to art. This really works a treat and the same applies to fusing the richness of her individual internal creativity, with the natural beauty of past European and Japanese artists. The upshot of this really shines through the art of Utsumi because her passion is never dimmed.”

Overall, the latest art piece by Utsumi shines through just like the mountain stands firm and remains strong irrespective of time. Equally, the adorable color scheme and beauty of nature pulls at the heart.
