Works 1999-2015 before and after the big Japanese earthquake
For Japan, the Great East Japan Earthquake occurred on March 11, 2011 and the disaster at the Fukushima nuclear power plant were extremely serious incidents, which made me reconsider what kind of works to create.  “Breathes” and “Twin Wells of Lies and Truth” released in a solo exhibition in 2011 are the works of critique with anger contained in beauty, inspired by the Earthquake.
Before the Earthquake, there were a series of “Water environment” and the works by lights titled “Peace Calendar” which calmly represented the preservation of environment and peace.  However, after March 11, 2011, I have come to convey my message more clearly from Japan which, different from the Western countries, possess 54 nuclear power plants on volcanic zones.

大地震の前と後の作品1999-2015
2011/03/11の東日本大震災と原発の事故は、日本にとって非常に大きな出来事だったので、今後どのような作品を作るべきかを改めて考えさせられた。その年の11月の個展で発表した「Breathe」と「Twin Wells of Lies and Truth」とは震災を主題とした、美しさの中に怒りをこめた批判的作品。大震災以前は、環境や平和の保全を静かに表現した、「水の環境」シリーズや「平和暦」の光の作品群があったが、2011/03/11以降はより明快にメッセージを伝えたいと思った。欧米とは異なり火山帯の上に54基の原発を抱えた日本から。

“Breathe”  2011.

Quote from Sumie’s artist statement
“Breathe”  December, 2011. Solo exhibition
“Red circle” is warped into oval by perspective. When I saw the picture, a series of “Warped Red Circle” was born.  Destruction of nature by our selfishness and destruction by development are leading human beings to extinction. I would like viewers to realize the human’s present situation by looking through the color red and warped circle  which mean danger.
「赤い丸」は遠近法によって楕円に歪む。この作品を写した写真を見て「歪んだ赤い丸」のシリーズが生まれた。私たち現代人の自己中心的な生活が生む自然破壊、進歩という破壊によって人間は滅亡に向かっているように感じる。自分の周辺を、危険を表す「赤」と「歪んだ丸」を通して見ることによって人間の現在の「あやうさ」を感じて欲しい。
松浦澄江さんの章より引用
