[exhibition summary, the highlight] placed Toru Narita (1929-2002) as one of the important writers in Aomori Museum of Art, and always showed a part of the monster design original picture in a permanent exhibition until now. However, the display that work of “the ultra” was the center conveys one side of the artist called Toru Narita.
Toru Narita is a sculptor, a painter, a designer, a special effects art director and the writer who worked on the various expression beyond the fence of the genre. After meeting painter, Gosei Abe during old system Aomori Junior High School (existing Aomori Senior High School) attendance at school, and having learned technique to make much of the structure of the motif and the constitution from Keiji Kosaka of the sculptor by a way of thinking to value “an essential impression” than the technique representing the picture more, I learn a picture, a sculpture in Musashino Beaux-Arts (existing Musashino Art University) and come into the limelight as a spirited sculptor on the stage of a production exhibition newly. On the other hand, after that, triggered by having participated in production of movie “Godzilla” (1954) as a part-time job, a lot of work of the special effects art dealt, too. “An ultra man” was in charge of the designs such as a hero, an alien, a monster, mechanic or the set in “ultra seven”, and, production, televised “ultra Q,” he brought about an excellent character called “Narita monster” in sequence from 1965 through 68. By the prominent molding sense that high artistic sensitivity of Narita was reflected, “the Narita monster” continues being still loved at the present that passed for nearly 50 years by broadcast and is it. After “ultra,” “a Shinkansen size blast” and “war and a human being” continue the work announcement of an oil painting image and the sculpture mainly on a private exhibition by the movie including “a disk war van kid” “mighty Jack” and “charge human” by the TV program while they deal with the special effects such as and “I leave this child” “descriptions of mahjong roam”. In addition, interest in monsters of all ages and countries and Narita who deepened knowledge produce huge sculpture “ogre monument” (Fukuchiyama-shi, Kyoto) in 1990, but it may be said that this product is a work of compiling it into one book of Narita as the sculptor.
By this retrospective show, I introduce the total picture of the work of Narita over such many divergences. I approach in the unknown total picture of the artist who hid unusual talent by 700 points of total amounts including a picture, the sculpture in in a special effects-related work, the unscreened monster design original picture, early days and the after 1970s including 187 points of ultra-related design original pictures of the Aomori Museum of Art possession.
