Upcoming Nakamura Exhibition, etc.

Busy busy busy. When I wake up in the morning, I sometimes lose track of where I am - Kawanishi (where my wife and daughter are living at the moment with my wife's family), Kyoto, Tokyo, or somewhere outside of Japan, in some foreign country's staid hotel room. I scratch my eyes, and then think, "my god, I have deadlines to meet," and then I'm writing articles for magazines in English, and then exhibition commentaries in Japanese. Nowadays, I'm beginning to lose track of just what language I'm writing in!

In any case, today I find myself writing my next article for Craft Arts International - I've already published two articles om Takeyama-san and Nagae-san (the upcoming issue), and the next feature will be Yede-san. Please stay tuned.

At the same time, we're busy preparing for the upcoming show of Kanazawa's Nakamura Takuo (中村卓夫 1945- ), who will be having his first solo show in Tokyo in 3 years.

He's such an amazing person, and I always find myself inspired by not only his passion for his art, but for his genuine honesty, humility, and his ability to remain so damn young! He's 66, but can definitely pass for early 50's - easy. ]

And it's not only his appearance, but the way he carries himself which gives off an impression of youth and vitality. I only wish I could be the same when I reach 66. At the same time, I'm also inspired by the way he continues to try and learn and better his art - it is this inability to be satisfied which continues to push his talents further. Old age can be a fetter in that sense, but not with Takuo-san. And his works have exponentially increased in beauty over the past three years alone. He has finally hit the creative stride that he himself had hungered for for so long, and his works fully evidence this new peak in his aesthetics.
