Calligraphy collages on canvas, 2022
Paper Leaves consists of three independent elements in dialogue with
each other. Every scrap of paper, even the leftovers, speak to me.
In the first one a poem by Masaoka Shiki 正岡子規
夏嵐なつあらし 机上きじょうの白紙はくし 飛とび尽つくす。
natsu arashi / kijou no hakushi / tobi tsukusu
A summer storm / the papers upon my desk / are blown away.
And four kana poems from Hyakunin isshu 百人一首.
In the second the famous four characters chinese aphorism. The Man departs – there remains his Shadow. 人去留影.
In the third the kanji “KAMI” 紙, paper, written over a collage made with original calligraphies.
Every single element bears my signature and seal.
“How Cool the Breeze/The Empty Sky is Filled with the Sound of the Pines”
Fragment of poem by Uejima Onitsura 上島 鬼貫 (1661-1738)
“Suzu kaze ya koku ni michite matsu no koe”
How cool the breeze/The empty sky is filled with the sound of the pines
