마유카 야마모토Mayuka Yamamoto는 1990년 무사시노 미술대학을 졸업하고, 1998년 일본 정부의 해외연구프로그램 장학생에 선발되어 런던으로 이주한 뒤, 그곳에서 마를린 뒤마Marlene Dumas, 길버트와 조지Gilbert & George 등 현지 작가들의 영향을 받아 본격적인 회화작업을 시작했다.

그녀는 나라 요시토모Nara YOSHITOMO, 다카시 무라카미Takashi MURAKAMI의 뒤를 잇는 재팬팝 2세대 대표작가이다. 부드럽고 모호한 배경 속에 있는 한 소년의 모습을 통하여, 따뜻하고 사랑스러운 겉모습 속에 감추어진 유년기의 상처와 원초적인 두려움에 관한 물음을 던지고 있다.

 

 

Mayuka Yamamoto graduated from Musasino College of Art in 1990, and since she moved to London by being selected as a scholarship student of Japanese government's overseas research program in 1998, she regularly began painting work by being influenced by the local artists as Marlene Dumas, Gilbert & George, etc.

She is a 2nd generation representative artist of Japan-pop, who succeeds Nara YOSHIMOTO and Takashi MURAKAMI. Through a boy's image in a soft and vague background, she throws a question about childhood hurt and primitive fear behind warm and lovely appearance.

그녀는 아이를 그리기 전에 “Mother”이라는 작품을 제작했다. 실제 자신의 어머니의 몸의 윤곽을 따서 동판화로 제작하여 전시를 하였는데, 그때 그녀는 그곳이 마치 자신만을 위한 어머니의 자궁 내부와 같음을 느꼈다. 그녀는 어린시절부터 어머니의 애정을 많이 받지 못하고 성장한 때문인지, 언제나 어머니를 갈구하고 있었다. 그러나 아이를 갖게 되고 그렇게 자신이 어머니가 되었을 때, 그녀는 그제서야 갈구하고 있던 어머니로부터 벗어날 수 있었다. 그때부터 그녀는 아이를 그리기 시작하였다.

 

“실제로 저의 아이를 그린적은 없습니다. 

제가 그리고 있는 아이는 제 자신이 아닌가 하는 생각이 듭니다. 

동물을 몸에 감싸고 있거나 함께 하는 것은 불안정하고 미분화된 상태에서 보호받고 싶고, 숨고 싶고, 상처받고 싶지 않은 마음 때문입니다.”

 

작가의 작품에서 주요 모티브로 등장하는 동물모양의 옷은 유년기의 트라우마를 숨기고, 성장에 대한 두려움을 나타내기 위한 수단으로 선택된 장치이며 작가의 작품에 더욱 강한 상징성을 부여한다.

 

 

She produced "Mother" before painting a child. She produced the figure of her mother with copperplate and exhibited it, during that time she felt that was the inside of mother's womb for only herself. Probably because she couldn't receive mother's love enough since her childhood, she always yeans for mother. However, when she got her child and became a mother, only then she could overcome her mother whom she's been yearning for. Since then, she began to draw a child.

“Actually, I've never drawn a child. Maybe the child I'm drawing is me. The image of covering child's body with an animal or being with it probably is due to the intention to be protected from unstable and undifferentiated state, want to hide, and not to be hurt.”

 

Animal shape dress which frequently appears in the artist's work as a major motif is a selected device to hide childhood trauma and express fear for growth, which gives the artist's work more strong symbolization.

“실재감(實在)은 있지만 이 세상의 것이 아닌듯한 존재를 그리고 싶었습니다.”

 

 

최근들어 작품의 묘사 방법에 있어서 현실감이 더욱 도드라졌다. 하지만 그 풍경 속 존재함이 분명한 아이의 모습에서 그림자는 사라졌고, 그려진 아이의 눈 또한 인간의 눈이 아닌 유리를 모티브로 하고 있다.

존재했지만 존재하지 않는, 실재감은 있지만 이 세상의 것이 아닌, 작품 속 아이는 우리의 유년시절과 현재를 이어주는 매개체가 되어준다.

 

 

“I wanted to draw an existence which has presence(實在), however which is not of this world. Recently, sense of reality has become more outstanding in description method of work.

However, shadow has disappeared in a child's image that has definite existence in the landscape, also, the image of child's eyes is a motif of glass, not human eyes.

What does not exist while it had been existed, which has sense of existence but is not of this world, child in the work becomes a medium to connect our childhood and the present.
