Next week's group show at Gallery Camellia in the Okuno bldg is a group of artists who usually use colour but have to work around the theme, 黒 (Black), chosen by Nana Masuda. When she first mentioned the theme, I remembered an etching of mine called, Willowy Darkness. I have not shown those in a Tokyo gallery before, so Black equals Darkness for me. I still have not decided whether or not I will also show drawings of the darkness under that willow tree.
Participating artists are:
Meguri Ichida/いちだめぐり (Lacquer and gourds/ひょうたんと漆)
Mima Kanokogi/鹿子木 美（Illustrations and multi-media/イラスト）
Visual/verbal Canadian artist/editor/translator in Japan. Analogue in a digital age.
