"Nothingness, Heart"

Toronto, Canada, 2009 | Exhibition

 

The essence of this exhibition is to explore the multiplicity of meanings at the core of each name and the multifaceted nature of every concept which finds a concrete expression. The characters for “Mu/ Nothing” and “Kokoro/ Heart Strings” are interpreted in various styles spanning centuries of history.  Various mixtures of ink allow these interpretations to find a deeper resonance. The charm and beauty of Calligraphy emerges through the simple act of ink appearing on white paper. In each of these successive movements, every new stroke brings its own voice and its own expressions; raging fierceness with one stroke, and harmonious calm with another.

 

書の妙味の一つは白い紙の上に描かれる墨の色、筆の跡のある時は静けさ、ある時は猛々しさ。「無」という文字の意味の深さ、「心」という文字の多面性、それらを、いろいろな書体、いろいろな墨色で幅を広げて表現した展示。
