Artist of whirls.  渦の絵師

The concept of “Rimpa” has gone beyond the narrow and closed framework of the Japanese art history since the beginning of the 21st century and is now shared across the world. It is probably a synonym of “Mannerism” as  Tatsuhiko  Shibusawa  once declared. The works of Ugetsu, artist of whirls, belong to the lineage of “unfinished Rimpa”, dating back to Ogata Korin’s search for irregular currents and whirls in his White Plum Blossoms.

21世紀に入って琳派の概念は偏狭で自閉的な日本美術史の枠組みを超えて、いまや世界的に共有されつつある。それはおそらく、澁澤龍彦が喝破したように、「マニエリスム」と同義なのだ。
尾形光琳の『紅白梅図』の乱流・渦の探究にはじまり、現在まで、時間と国を超えて間歇的に現れる、その「未完の琳派」の系譜に、渦の絵師・有月の「画」はつらなっている」
