Japanese Art and Mirage of Kamisaka Sekka by Sawako Utsumi


The sublime simplicity of art by Kamisaka Sekka (1866-1942) is a wonder to behold. This reality is behind my art piece because this Japanese artist illuminated the art world of my native country in the last century. Of course, other amazing Japanese artists have blessed the art world but the simplicity and sophistication of Sekka is really special.

In my art piece the individual could be searching on a religious quest, equally he could be lost and tired – or merely the individual could be going home in order to rest from the harsh weather conditions. Other factors can equally be imagined and in a sense this is the beauty of Sekka because the real meaning is often left to the individual. Indeed, maybe no meaning exists because in time all moments are lost based on the reality of death.
