My friends know Eros Nakazato as the guy with the great hair who makes cool stuff around my house. (Like the outdoor bath light and the staircase railing going upstairs. ) We have had a few exhibitions together in Europe over the years.
He had an exhibition of a sumi ink painting he did on cloth at our local restaurant last month. As always it was breathtaking... his work sort of takes the oxygen out of the room.
Of course it was filled with horses. The background writing is a poem written by a Japanese poet/ essayist in the final months of the second world war. The painting referenced some of Eros older work and of course the tsunami and Fukushima.
He did not melt the wax off and left it there to add to the surreal lighting from behind. The only colour was on the moon behind the horse.
