“Harmony with nature” is a recurrent theme in Keiji Yamazaki’s paintings and he has created many excellent works. He uses a style of painting which integrates “kachō-ga” (a painting of flowers and birds) with a landscape painting. This style was perfected by Taisei Satou (his master).
At a height of 55 meters, “Naena-taki” (“Naena” Falls) has been chosen as one of Japan’s 100 greatest waterfalls. The sounds of the massive amounts of falling water can be heard from all directions, giving it the name “Earthquake Waterfalls.”
Keiji Yamazaki expressed the waterfall’s great force with the strong contrast in this painting. I can almost hear the roaring sound of the waterfall. When he was painting, a small bird crossed the waterfall. At that moment, he felt the undaunted strength of small life and depicted the small bird in this painting. We can feel that the great force of the waterfall and the vitality of the small bird compliment each other. This is an extremely wonderful work.
Taisei Satou (1913-2004)
A Japanese-style painter. He was a member of the Japan Art Academy and a great master of the Japanese art world. He was famous for perfecting the style of painting, which combines “kachō-ga” (a painting of flowers and birds) with a landscape painting.
