Policy change 方針転換


I was fortunate enough to practice calligraphy under a very distinguished calligrapher since early childhood.  However, as this “About me” sectionshows I have seldom specified his name.

As you are certainly aware, Japan has entered into a new era, I decided to change this policy.

By this, I mean so far I have been feeling too embarrassed to unveil the name of the teacher who enjoyed great fame as a calligrapher all through his life, and fully realizing my own inferiority as his disciple.

Now, as more than twenty years have passed since my teacher the late Akiyama Kodo (秋山公道)has passed away, I began to feel it is wasteful only to enjoy the wonderful works he kindly gave me for myself.

Certainly I displayed a few of them at the five exhibitions both solo- and group-exhibitions I ever held.  However, I began to think this is not enough and I must extensively show his remarkable pieces of calligraphic art.

And here is the first one I would like to show.  It is a Chinese character from my name.  When he wrote one letter from the name of each of his granddaughter, he kindly did the same thing for me because he treated me as one of his granddaughters.

I live in Kyoto, Japan, where I was born and raised. I began practicing calligraphy at age six under the late Mr. Akiyama Kodo, a distinguished master of calligraphy whose calligraphic works are found even today on stone monuments for public parks and fasciae for long-established businesses. Despite my age, I think I am increasingly active in my calligraphic practice. "My works give the impression of lightheartedness and overflowing vitality, evoking the dance of air and the flow of clear water" is what people tell me, I am happy and proud to tell you. My distinct style has attracted many followers both domestic and abroad. Having continued for over half a century to be evolving as a calligrapher, I am never willing to compromise. May accomplishments: Solo exhibition, 2009 and three group exhibitions in Kyoto, Japan (2011, 2013, 2015) Participation in a group exhibition in Poznan, Poland, November 2017 Productions as requested from individuals, businesses and citizen’s movements.
