REN page-9

This is an one of the biggest Japanese Calligraphy work in Sydney.

It describes following excerpt from a novel "On Seeing the 100% Perfect Girl One Beautiful April Morning" by Haruki Murakami.

Long, long ago in a certain place there was a boy and a girl. The boy was 18 years old, and the girl was 16 years old.

He was not a very handsome boy, and she was not a very beautiful girl. They were just an ordinary, lonely boy and girl who you might see anywhere. But they believed strongly that somewhere in the world there must be a girl and a boy who would match them 100 percent. One day they came across each other for the first time on a street corner.

This is exhibited on a wall of hair salon Revo Studio in city of Sydney.

I always cut my hair at this hair salon, and a big wall in the mirror had been on my mind.

There is a big window wihch I can see light green leaves reflicting on sunset.

That contrast reminded me of novel of Haruki Murakami.

And I expressed pure and innocent with an excerpt from a Haruki Murakami's novel "On Seeing the 100% Perfect Girl One Beautiful April Morning".


This work is constructed with 5 sheets of paper.

Each paper is 3m x 1m.
