This is a ten years project and currently ongoing series for me.
Because of the big project, the original artworks from this series are NOT available yet for purchase until summer 2021. The print and artbook will first become available this fall 2020.
This Part1: “Cry for LOVE- What Women Feel-” is based exclusively on desperate love poems/letters regarding women’s feeling by female authors, including three poems that were written by male authors who wrote from female perspective. I reflected those poems in heart with re-written calligraphy on rice paper. (In Total: 25 unique pieces completed in part 1)
The original meaning of the Japanese ancient poem #80 that you see in calligraphy –I translated:
“I don't know if your love will last long. After you left me this morning, I am feeling disturbed as if my long black hair disheveled…like the tangles.”
