"Obi Yumiko (小尾裕美子) at Gallery-405" (100202)

Japanese calligraphy is something I always admire, but also feel frustrated about, since no matter how many times I practice writing kanji characters, they never look remotely like those written by an experienced hand.  And so it was with the exhibit at Gallery-405 in the Okuno Building:

Discussing the exhibition with Obi Yumiko (小尾裕美子), she explained in detail the meaning of one of the expressions to me that I would like to explain, but I remember the concept without remembering the exact wording.  Next time I'll ask if it's okay to quote the exhibit and write it down!

In any case, whether you can read the characters or not, they stand on their own as art and are nice to contemplate.
