About "Our secret"

Updated: May 28, 2021

Small artwork. 2020 "Our secret"

It was Shuntaro Tanikawa (Japanese famous poet) who said, "I wish I could write a poem as good as a single flower".

That's exactly what I thought.

I am deeply impressed by the beauty of the flowers I see on the street and in flower shops.

This work is modeled after a single rose that I welcomed into my room.

I left it in a narrow vase, and one day the leaves looked like a rose's hand, and it looked like it was doing a "Shhhhhh" with its fingertips on its lips.

I thought that flowers were supposed to be arranged, looked at, and looked pretty and that was the end of it, but this is just a matter of one's own heart. Sometimes the gestures of the living beings who came here can be found.

I have a family, but there are moments when I feel alone and helpless.

This would be a good time to talk to a rose.

This rose was a friend who shared a little word with me.

The loneliness faded a little and I was happy, so I made this work so that I would not forget that feeling.

The piece is small and thin, and although it is cute, it is framed with a dignified presence. I hope you will enjoy it in your room.
