未2015 the year of the SHEEP

01-11,2015



2015

A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL!!

I WISH YOU A BEAUTIFUL YEAR OF THE SHEEP!!




sheep collage


The SHEEP / GOAT poeple are born in those years: 

1931 - 1943 - 1955 - 1967 -  1979 - 1991 - 2003 - 2015


The sheep (goat, or ram) is among the animals that people like most. It is gentle and calm. Since ancient times, people have learned to use its fleece to make writing brushes and skin to keep warm. As it is white, people describe delicate and precious white jade to be 'suet jade'.
Thus it is close to the meaning of good things.

Strengths
People under the sign of the sheep are tender, polite, filial, clever, and kind-hearted. They have special sensitivity to art and beauty, faith in a certain religion and a special fondness for quiet living. They are wise, gentle and compassionate and can cope with business cautiously and circumspectly. In their daily life, they try to be economical. Women born in this year are willing to take good care of others, but they should avoid pessimism and hesitation. They are kind in heart and commonly have symmetrical figures and features.

Weaknesses
Sheep year people are often worriers who are shy, pessimistic, moody, indecisive, over-sensitive, weak-willed and puzzled about life. They are easily inclined to be deeply religious. They are timid in nature and like to be looked after by others. They like flattery, compliment and suggestions from friends. They do not dare to express their love openly and usually have interests in strange theories.

絵 Painted Poem 〜Every day is a good day

10-16,2014



I can not believe I missed out September !

I need to put the Summer Kimonos back in the wardrobe again.


The whole summer in Japan was great and tasty,

but then I rushed back into preparing for the exhibition in Bad Säckingen,

and my miss Mous started her kindergarden. 

This September has just passed by like a late summer storm.


And now when I look up and walk around, it is already the golden autumn time here in blackforest.

Yellow, mustard, mandarin, orange, golden brawn.....and my favoutite Dill flowers are right there in our garden!

I feel I need to celebrate the herbest and their colours now!!


Fancy some beautiful walk this weekend??

Enjoy!!

or is it a dance 

is it the sound of tears?!

or the sound of laughter and joy?

The flower pillow and the night cherry blossom that have been celebrated

The pink tear drops and their sweet scent  

The blossomed dreams that got blasted without a word


Those are all genuine sweet feelings of SAKURA, the truth of cherry flower

Let it be  let those flowers be  and let those bamboos be 

Flower's reasons and Bamboo's heart

PAINTED POEM gallery“ MEDETAI-TAMAMONO-CELEBRATING PEARLS“

05-11,2013


When I feel weak and worn out 

this Painted Poem piece always gives me a positive shower -

colour of crimson

vigor of Tai fish

and

a reminder of thankfulness - 


*

-TAI in Japanese means : Red Sea Bream, symbolizes celebration of life
-TAI in Japanese verb means : to want 
So I made a word game with these double meanings.
Crimson colour also symbolizes celebration.

The calligraphy here is composed to create a feeling of firm vigorous Tai fish swimming slowly. 
The message is :

 " you were wanted to be in this world,

your life is celebrated and cherished so do love every moment of your life "


The inspiration was :

the power of positive mindfulness / vivid lively colour of crimson / love for life

幸〜HAPPINESS〜my painted poem gallery

03-26,2013



I have been just re-organizing my archives back to 2000 - that was when I started working on

my freshly discovered Neo-Japonism style paintings in London.

Every single day I was painting - day and night

- experimenting and  working on the progress in my tiny messy  but cozy atelier room.

This is one of my early Neo-Japonism art works from mountain series.



Whenever I feel  

'The grass is always greener on the other side (of the fence)'
  
I try to remind myself of my own mantra!! 

As long as they* are there*- I should be fine, shouldn't I ?!


This was my beautiful honest beginner's mind.

" Many a little makes a mickle " with HASAMI

WEB many little makes a mickle


Thomas-san who lives in Heidelberg bought one of my paintings ( Chameleon! ) a few years ago
- and he has a company called HASAMI dealing with professional Japanese hair scissors in Europe.

He got inspired by my Neo-Japonism concept and interested in collaboration.
And I would be very happy to work with him in a new line of collection, 
harmonizing with neo-japonism painting images....


Winterpostkarte web 

They picked this painting which I have done on 2010
for their winter greeting cards to their clients.
I think it is a nice cool idea!! ARIGATO*

And he and his friends in Heibelberg also organized and founded an association called 
KOPF HOCH JAPAN! to support and to help victim of 3.11. 
 
They organize the benefit concerts and cultural days in order to
support the future of victims. 
I would also like to take a part in benefit activities
like selling calligraphy names for the guests....
http://www.kopf-hoch-japan.de/
Here is also link to his company
www.hasami.de


I sincerely support those people and children of 3.11
who keeps on pulling themselves up every single day since that day.

And

I would say so loud to them that there is so many compassionate people around the world 
(who Japanese media does not report!!)

 they also keep concerning and supporting their future 
Ganbatte!!& Love

maybe I am just attracted by their unique atmosphere.

Bamboos are strong, flexible, atmospheric, growing fast, creates nice sound,
fits to all seasons, poetic, eatable, has many usages
and great to paint either with colour or black ink.

They can grow 100m long and only straight ahead to the sunlight
- and need a lot of water.

and just began to practise the teachings and to experience outside world.
How can they apply the teachings to reality?!

I put my all the time favourite - goldfish and
the visual movement and image of Unsui together.
And the shape of goldfish is created to have a KIRIE( Japanese cutting paper collage ) illusion.
This is one of the latest collections which I made 7 paintings all in a similar colour theme and motives.

Have a beautiful summer holiday.

Painted poem Gallery 「Enso- Hanazo」

01-26,2011


I combined the classic callgraphic Enso and a sense of celebrated life.

In the poem, I put my wish and hope

- more from us will have beautiful blossoms.


Enso is the circle
It symbolizes harmony, the absolute, enlightenment,
peace, strength, elegance, the Universe, and the void.

For me Enso symbolizes wholeness, togetherness and harmony –

that we can start to reach within ourselves first.

Enso can be said is like * the window of KOKORO *

( * Japanese word : mind, spirit, feeling, heart )

It seems to me the goal, the process and the beginning at the same time

as we try to reach a lay of SATORI - Enlightenment. 

Enso always reminds me of the essence of life.

 





 

ENSO - HANAZO

圓相花相

 

Enso is coming home with a big laugh

Enso is making blossoms out of a dry branch

Let every flower blossom, let everyone blossom

 

大きな笑顔で 入鄽垂手(にってんすいしゅ)

Painted Poem Gellery ' A TALE OF NOW AND THEN '

12-07,2010


The inspiration for my work is

everyday life’s living words and letters,

as well as living colours, lines, patterns and shapes

– I will never get bored with how they communicate with each other

and how they create a new form of endless impression.

And always - a passion to discover a continuity of time and spiritual existence.


Here is a tale of NOW and THEN.

" A TALE OF NOW AND THEN 昔話、未来話 "


 - Infinite future-


Once upon a time

the infinite future took us on board,

and

it will never leave you alone.


ミライエイゴウ

昔むかし

永遠に流れるという未來が

私たちを連れだして

これからは絶対に

ひとりにはさせないよって

伝えてくれた。

sunsunsun
wanting to be the happiest
just because having nothing?!
come around to this side
take me to the other side

sunsunsun
roll over to this side
and roll to the other side
sunsunsun

Make a turn over here
make a turn over there
dance - turn - and dance around

sunsunsun
if you go there, come back again
turn around there
roll around here

Just go to the place where you feel the happiest
- where your spirit is simply just joyful.

Antique Kimono collage / ’ THE FLOWER RHAPSODY IN RED ’

09-29,2010


I spread and let this perfume float around you
just because I make you sleep deep



I show you these forms, and beg you to give me a smile
just because I devote myself to you



This smooth and fine texture is there
to calm your mind down



I keep showing so many impression-full modest colours to you
just because I would like to give you a joy



The crimson pattern is my feeling -
which became flower-sound to heal you
which became a part of rhapsody 

I just play this crimson poem, so you will cheer up.
