1998"Seiin" (Silent Rhyme)
An exhibit at the 30th Japan Fine Arts Exhibition
Wandering aimlessly, late one night, just after a rain shower, I suddenly found myself standing still, mesmerized by the sight of a mysterious patch of hydrangeas. It was dimly illuminated by a beam of moonlight shining through an opening in the heavy clouds and appeared to be floating in the mist. Although at that moment I was inspired to sketch my impressions of the hydrangeas, I felt like I was intruding upon a vision in a dream.
