a tiny world of disproportionate curiosity;  a place where the traditions of art, fashion and theatre often coalesce in the surreal

the beauty of nature

All these lovely fairytale themed posts
reminded me of these little works of art...

which I created for an exhibition back in 2003 at 
Linden: Centre for Contemporary Arts 

It was a collaborative effort between myself
and the very talented Motoko Kikkawa.

The exhibition was entitled:

Flower Bird Wind Moon

which is the literal translation of the characters 
forming the japanese term Kachofugetsu.

Together these characters translate as

'The Beauty Of Nature'.

In the tradition of japanese art,
any one or all of these symbols will
 be included in any work depicting 
the beauty of the natural world.

This concept formed the basis for 
our explorations in this exhibition
and the inspiration for our artwork.
