About The Artwork

In 2020, the English Lake District marked two important anniversaries: the 250th anniversary of William Wordsworth's birth and the centenary of the death of Hardwicke Drummond Rawnsley. Wordsworth was a famous Romantic Poet Laureate, while Rawnsley was an Anglican priest and one of the founders of the National Trust. Both were passionate about preserving the natural beauty of the Lake District. To celebrate this significant year, I embarked on an art project "Wordsworth, Rawnsley and Lake District" with the support of the Arts Council England Emergency Response Fund. The project culminated in a solo exhibition at Rydal Mount in 2021. This artwork is part of a nature-themed series in the project entitled 'Winter Air'. I saw her on a crisp winter day during my daily walk with my beloved dog who passed away in early 2023. Since he died, my daily walk has been interrupted even now. This artwork reminds me of the happy memories I shared with my dog. In a way, a very personal piece. I created this series through on-site research at Rydal Mount & Gardens and the surrounding areas in my daily life. I explored the sense of place in the garden that Wordsworth himself designed and linked it to my personal experiences, opening up the possibility for a dialogue that transcends time and space.

Hideyuki Sobue (b. 1965) lives and works in the Lake District, UK, yet grew up as an orphan in Aichi, Japan. Working with drawing and painting, two historic media that have served as a fundamental means of communication since prehistoric times, he explores the unbroken line in the relationship between art and humanity. Sobue uses an entirely original brush hatching technique employing Japanese sumi ink and acrylic. Created through a fusion of influences - the concept of Disegno in the Florentine school of the Renaissance, oriental artistic heritage and neurological studies - Sobue’s medium attempts to create a platform bridging east and west, and explore the interdisciplinary approach related to the human act of seeing. Sobue has exhibited extensively throughout the UK and Japan. Notable exhibitions include “A Letter to the Earth from Beatrix” commissioned by the National Trust and supported by Arts Council England (Allan Bank, Grasmere); "Wordsworth, Rawnsley and Lake District", celebrating the 250th anniversary of William Wordsworth’s birth and the centenary of Hardwicke Rawnsley’s death supported by Arts Council England (Rydal Mount & Gardens, Ambleside); "Conversation with Ruskin", celebrating the bicentenary of John Ruskin's birth, supported by Arts Council England (the Blue Gallery, Brantwood, Coniston/ The Ruskin Museum, Library and Research Centre, Lancaster University, Lancaster); "Wordsworth and Basho: Walking Poets" (Itami City Museum Kakimori Bunko, Japan); "I Wandered...", commemorating the 200th anniversary of the final publication of William Wordsworth's poem "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud" (Rydal Mount & Gardens, Ambleside); "The Way I See" supported by Arts Council England (Japan House Gallery, the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation, London); the Royal Scottish Academy Open (RSA Lower Gallery, Edinburgh); the Ruth Borchard Self-Portrait Prize (Kings Place, London); Royal Birmingham Society of Artists Open (RBSA Gallery); National Open Art (Minerva Theatre, Chichester). Among other public collections, his work is housed at Rydal Mount & Gardens - a historic house with gardens designed by William Wordsworth. Sobue’s works are currently held in public & private collections in Japan, China, UK, Netherlands, Australia, Canada and USA.
