This painting depicts an Oirase stream in Aomori pref. on silk with sumi ink by Tomo Katou.
Oirase paintings by him have characteristic of vivid colours but this painting is quite different from what he has ever painted.
In his previous works, he has been very keen on drawing vitality of the nature.
However, with this new work, he expresses the beauty of the silent hidden land that has a certain mystique.
When it comes to the painting style of suiboku-ga (Japanese ink painting) on silk, Tomos’s master, Kibou Kodama is outstanding.
His suibokuga make us feel the mystery of nature and are clearly different from other painters works.
Tomo Katou was his last diciple and we can see through this piece that his secret technique had been handed down to Tomo Katou.
