2001 -


ひとつの色彩/記憶の形見(Scarlet の作品)

選ばれた唯一の色(Scarlet)による一連の作品は、全くの簡素さゆえその空間へのまなざし、此処 という視野の精度へと向けられます。 そして、その場に或る中断と秩序との安静の感情をともなうように・・・。 また、同一の単色とニュートラルな色面による制作は、私にとって日々体感される数々の場面や 出来事など繋ぎ止めておく、色彩による記憶のテクストとも言える側面を同時に持ち合わせてい ます。これまでの彫刻の着地感に込めた思い[どうしようもなくのこってしまうもの]という回 想への価値とは裏腹に、新たな色彩の領域に託したものは、保留と空虚を孕みながらも持ちこた える質に対して、場所をあける作業と言うほかありません。そして、清明な現れに換気される心的 均衡は、再びその時々の現実と空想に委ねられる事として・・・。 2001 年10 月、制作メモより 鈴木 隆


A single color / Memento of a Memory (Works in Scarlet)

In the series of works in one chosen color (Scarlet), due to their absolute simplicity, the attention is directed to the gaze at the space, and the precision of vision identified as this place. And, also to accompany the feelings of interruption, order, and relaxation that exist in the place… Fur ther, the works done in one single color and neutral color field, to me, simultaneously hold an aspect that can be called a text of memory through color to secure the many scene and events I experience everyday. On the contrary to the value for remembrance, a fondness for “those things that can’t help but linger,” which I have put into the completion of the sculptures until now, the thing entrusted to the new realm of color is nothing other than the creation of room for substance that endures, in spite of being filled with reservation and nothingness. And the emotional balance awakened by the pure and clear appearance would again be entrusted to the reality and imagination moment to moment… October, 2001—from a note Takashi Suzuki

Scarlet Paintings ”Text" 私が他の色を差し置いて「赤」に特別な興味を抱いているのは、この矩形の色彩に神秘性といっ た類のものとは異なる普遍的な精神の定数を託することができると感じているからです。色彩は 支持体に浸透して色面としての光彩を放つという自明の理にあらためて集中することは、絵画が 本来持っている豊穣な表現要素を切り捨ててもなお残る可能性に終始します。 こうしたモノクロームに導かれての絶え間なき制作の連鎖は、その高波長ゆえの鮮明さから受け る「いま、ここ」という感覚に記録手記とも言うべき側面も持ち合わせています。そしてなにより も簡素なコンポジションと設置位置に呼応する静謐な精神変容に、或る中断の印象をともなった 覚醒とその後のゆるやかな思惟の場を創造するものです。 (綴りの色彩/作成メモより)

Scarlet Paintings ”Text"

The reason why I am deeply interested in “red” over all other colors is because I feel that within the color red on any rectangular canvas I create, I am able to express an invariable universal spirit that is different from anything that exists within the domain of the mysterious. The color I utilize in my work penetrates into the suppor t of my painting, and then emits a luster in the form of a color surface. My focus on this self-evident element is so that I can concentrate on creating a sufficient surface strength that can manifest itself, even though I have abandoned the fertile expressionistic elements essentially inherent in the medium of painting. My ar tistic production that has evolved in a continuous series was steered by my utilization of a single color. A sense of the “here and now” I perceive from red is derived from the lucidity brought about by the high wavelength frequency possessed by the color. My work also contains an element of creating something like a documentary. Above all, a peacefully transforming spirit that can be perceived from the simple compositions and positions in which my paintings are exhibited awakens viewers at cer tain intervals. This then creates a site for them to undergo a time of moderate contemplation. (On my series of scarlet paintings / from my note)

五重奏( 一部抜粋)

2004

松本 透 東京国立近代美術館企画課長  一枚の絵画の「内容」とはつまるところその時代の世界観であるとするなら、統一した世界観 なり自然観を喪失した時代にあって、そもそも絵画が可能なのかどうか。画家であれば誰しも直 面せざるをえないこの問題に、彫刻家鈴木隆はまた別の角度から逢着したようである。90 年代の かれの仕事はおおむね、鍛造工場のかたすみに打ち棄てられて野晒しになった廃材に、切る、焼 く、叩くといった最小限の手を加え、詩的なことばのかけらをタイトルとして添えて、床に並べ る態のものであった。そのかれが、前世紀が押しつまった頃から緋色一色の絵画をほとんど日誌 をつけるように描き留めはじめた裏には、現代にあっては、こともあろうに絵画こそが断片のな かの断片であり、日々の真率ではあるが散り散りの感覚エッセンスをとどめうる媒体である、と いった直感がはたらいていたように思われてはならない。総タイトルは《Text》。画面の大きさや、 縦横の比率や、厚さを微妙に調整し、綿布か、木か、紙か、支持体を選びながら描かれるそれらのテ キストは、いつの日か絵画が、あるいは彫刻が、いま一度世界を記述しうるようになるときのため に営々と描き継がれていく、辞書か、文法書の一貢の端切れのようなものといえるかも知れない。 (Hand in Hand 展覧会カタログより)


Quintet

2004

Toru Matsumoto (Chief Curator, The national Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo) If the “content” of a painting is essentially a view of the world of the period in which it was created, then one might first ask whether it is viable for paintings to created today at a time when a standardized view of the world and nature has been negated. The sculptor Takashi Suzuki faced this problem from a different point of view, a problem which any painter must inevitably face. Suzuki’ s works in the 1990s mainly utilized scrap materials that were weatherbeaten and abandoned in corners of a forging factory. He minimized his manipulation of those materials by simply cutting, burning, or pounding them. He added a fragmental poetic word to each work as the title, and then placed them on the floor. I cannot help but think that the underlying reason why he began to commit to his time to creating monochromatic scarlet paintings as if he were writing a dairy at the time when we were about to reach the end of the century was because he had the intuition that in today’ s state of affairs, paintings of all the things is the medium that can best express the essence of the sense of the scattered state we are in today, even though painting is truly a fragmental task and the genuinely the truth about our daily lives. The title of entire series of his works is Text. He paints “text” via subtly adjusting the size of his surface plane, the ratio between length and width, and thickness of his work, as well as by selecting panels from cotton, wood or paper as the support of his paintings. This series can be described as being the fragments of a page in a dictionary or a grammar book, which he will unceasingly create in succession so that he can be prepared for the day when painting and sculpture can once again become the mediums that are able to describe the world.
