"Futari" is the fourth film in the "Futari" series.

The series, which began as an irregular series around 2008, is about two people, the basis of a relationship.
It's an experiment in expressing various scenes. And the two are not limited to humans.
Sometimes it is expressed metaphorically with symbolic structures.

The meaning of the iconography of the "landscape with two people" and the sense of matiere through "layering,
It is my hope that the audience will connect to the feelings for humanity that are inherent in each of them.

This work "ver.4" is a scene of an old married couple, "two people who have cuddled up over the years and are fading away".
In other words, it is a scene of an old married couple.

In 2010, a year before the creation of this work, Fujimoto's parents moved to Okinawa when it became difficult for them to live in their hometown.
In the midst of balancing her parents' care, her creative work, and her own personal life, Fujimoto was able to
Fujimoto's feelings about "old age" were also an inspiration for this work.

In the process of making the work, I made a full-scale line drawing, like a Japanese painting drawing, and then made a tracing of the line drawing in a different way from the painting.
Create on paper. Then I plan the layered composition of the colors to be painted over, but not necessarily
I don't care about the inherent colors of the motif, but I will make a choice of colors that I feel are good from a pictorial perspective.

Once the plan is decided to some extent, both in terms of lines and color, the line drawing on tracing paper is placed on the panel.
After transcribing, we started to make the main picture.
Both sides of the panels used are pasted on both sides. The whole surface of the screen, sides, and back are painted on the ground. The same color as the screen background color is applied to the sides
It has been painted over. In the screen, after the prep work by priming and grinding to break up the wood grain.
More than 20 layers of paint are applied as a depiction, both partial and solid.
Then, the grinding is repeated with water-resistant sandpaper while spraying with water until the finished screen is found.

A string is attached to the back of the work so that pins and hooks can be hooked on the wall side when installing.
It is designed to be It's a smooth matier, so it can be wiped clean with a dishcloth, etc.

By layering and grinding acrylic paints, the painting surface itself is painted (personally, I call it "layering").
The process of layering is the same as in "Layers of Color", a non-target free painting.
Its matière and coloration are consistent.

One of the characteristics of painting is to make the most of its "multilayered magic".
A scene that can only exist with paint on a support. The creation of paintings as physical crystals.
In 1999, I found a way of doing "layering" which was in line with my desire to create, and I have been doing it since then.
Since then, I have been using this 'layering' to explore the possibilities of painting."
