Laxerop Folding Screen / ラージェロップ 屏風

Laxerop folding screen as “Japanese art that goes beyond replicas.”

The first approach to Laxerop technology was imaging (printing) on ​​Japanese paper.
The purpose was to find out that “torinoko paper” is used for ancient Japanese fusuma and folding screens.

On the other hand, there is nothing better than the electrophotographic method, which is the texture (color saturation), image durability, and environmentally friendly printing method (image forming method) of sumi-e.
I was convinced.
This is partly because I myself have been involved in electrophotographic technology for many years, but it is also the result of a calm analysis (SWOT) of various recording technologies (image forming technology/printing technology).

What electrophotographic technology will you use in the early days?
Also, since existing technology is difficult, what kind of method should you consider? I spent a lot of time on trial and error.
In that trial and error, it was true that I accidentally found an image forming method (printing method) on Japanese paper suitable for folding screens.
However, when I recall now, I think it was a “short time”, and I was lucky.

Let me give you the details of the technology on another occasion, and here
I would like you to experience Laxerop folding screen as “Japanese art that goes beyond replica”, which is a fusion of new technology and craftsmanship , not just a replica or printed matter. I would like to write about your feelings like,.

“2 Unryu, 1 Shotora, 1 Sansui” in the Manchu-ji Temple of Yokosuka was created by Kaino
Saito, a Kano school painter from the end of the Edo period to the Meiji era.
This is a designated cultural property of Yokohama City, but it is presumed that it was a project by an artist and a painter.

In addition, even when I checked the details when performing this high-resolution digital archive, the description was very impressive.
Also, for the first
Unryu figure I archived , I had to make corrections many times (this is due to my own immorality), and it was almost completed in data correction and Laxerop printing. Even so, I had no choice but to discard it.

Of course, I don’t know the situation at the time when the fusuma picture was drawn, but at that time, it must have been made with a great spirit.
I’m neither an artist nor an artisan, but the colors don’t match, the texture is different, the position is different, and so on.

There are many various obstacles and we have cultivated know-how, but the
biggest obstacle in the first folding screen production is 4 songs per boat, 60 sheets of bird’s child paper (correctly, new bird’s child paper) After they were aligned, they were aligned and cut.
Japanese paper is hard and thick, so it’s difficult to cut with an art cutter, and a Japanese traditional Japanese knife was needed.

Using a special mat recommended by a tableware shop introduced by a long-established Japanese paper shop, and a special ruler and a Japanese knife, 4 sheets of 15 Japanese papers per song are stacked
to create a scaffolding and weight is applied. And cut it all at once.
Precise cutting is impossible without this set of Japanese knife and ruler.

Once you insert the blade, you cannot stop the Japanese knife until the end.
Moreover, if it deviates even a little, it starts over from printing…
With one song, you can go six times and finally you can get 15 folding screen pieces for one song.
Of course, sweat is likely to drip, but it protects.

to the 60 folding screen pieces that were completed, we made it into a folding screen, so we went to a well-established folding screen shop.

“Is it really possible to make a Laxerop folding screen ??”
” Is n’t this good?” “No, it’s still useless.”
“I’m sorry to Saito Kaishin, too. ,”

To be honest, it was a day when I had that feeling.

Yes, it’s easy to print on a large format printer.
But what is the reproduction of Kaishin Saito’s fusuma picture?
The wonderfulness of making it from scratch, I can feel the thought of Kaishin Saito.

“If you can get a lot of excitement by seeing this Laxerop screen, that’s
what you want .”

is undeniable that the original idea of ​​dividing and pasting was to say that there is no laser printer for high-quality art with a width of 900 mm or more and a length of 1,200 mm or more in the world .
We are
confident that the fusuma itself is a pasting, and the texture of the fusuma picture drawn on it is wonderful, and the texture of the fusuma is the folding screen that embodies the spirit of the ancient Japanese craftsmen. I can say that.

The first Laxerop folding screen was completed in this way.
At present, we have reviewed all the processes and added improvements so that a more stable folding screen can be made.

We would like you to experience the Laxerop folding screen as “Japanese art that goes beyond replicas.”



Laxerop(ラージェロップ )技術の最初のアプローチは、和紙への画像形成(印刷)でした。


また、既存技術では難しいので、どんな手法を考えるか? などの試行錯誤に、多くの時間を費やしました。


横須賀 満昌寺様に所蔵されている「雲龍図2隻、松虎図1隻、山水図1隻」は、
幕末から明治時代にかけての狩野派の絵師 斉藤海信によるものです。

データ補正や、Laxerop(ラージェロップ )印刷において、完成間近であっても、破棄せざるを得ない、、、判断をしました。
