Beautiful Japanese print exhibition at the Bristol Museum. This one is by Hokusai. Amida Waterfall on the Kiso Highway. People picnicking rather precariously by a water fall. He died in 1849.
My grandfather was born in the 1880s so would have almost certainly have seen these, or at least been aware of his work.
When I look at these prints, they give me a fuller understanding of my grandfather's paintings - the colours, the shapes, the subject matters.

Some of the sculptures from Les Jardins des Tuileries installed during FIAC art fair. 1 & 2) Kohei Nawa’s painted aluminium sculpture exploring the effect of gravity on highly viscous liquid and Richard Long’s “Blue Sky Circle” made from marble and pink granite. 3) Mia Marfurt’s “Aqua Felice” is made of artificial food casing (from sausage production, gelatine and Epson ink). I like how languid these sculptures are; unlike metal works that imitate soft objects (e.g Jeff Koons’s balloons) there is a danger of them bursting. ••• “evoking drawing exponentially magnified, these forms restructure flatness into a modular 3D systems imported into the organic architecture of the Jardin des Tuileries.”••• 最初の写真の作品は名和公平さんの物です。日本人の芸術家がパリで展示されていることは素晴らしいと思います！ #fiac#paris#sculpture#koheinawa#japaneseart#richardlong#americanart#swissart#artfair
Inktober Day 22: Hahakigami
APPEARANCE: A hahakigami is a tsukumogami which takes up residence in a broom. They can sometimes be seen on cold, windy late autumn mornings, sweeping wildly at the blowing leaves.
ORIGIN: Long ago, brooms were not household cleaning tools, but actually holy instruments used in ritual purification ceremonies. They were used to on the air in a room or area in order to purify it and sweep out any evil spirits and negative energy that might be lingering there. Like any tool used for many years, a broom which reaches a very old age becomes a perfect home for a spirit — perhaps even moreso in the case of a hahakigami because of the ritual nature of its origin.
Hahakigami are used also as magical charms for safe and quick childbirth. Because brooms are used to “sweep out” evil energy, a hahakigami acts as a sort of totem to “sweep out” the baby from its mother safely. They are also used as charms to keep guests from overstaying their visit. Anyone who has stayed beyond their welcome might also be “swept out” by the power of the hahakigami.
In the post of the day an invitation to go visit #Tokyo , the perfect destination for those curious or hungry to learn more about #art , because there's always something interesting to be seen, from traditional woodblock prints and calligraphy to manga and digital butterflies, there's something for every taste.
A #mustshare post !!
#22 - EXPENSIVE
Hakane could not approach the Onibi in any way, which took from Takeshi until the last drop of his life , so he fell unconscious. The ghost picked him up and was about to leave the room, when the girl's eyes became red as fire and managed to eliminate the two little yokais, driven by fraternal love. Then the Onibi came back and opened his mouth trying to absorb the life of Hakane, but she dodged his attack and cut the ghost in two. From its body came out the soul of Takeshi, who repositioned in his body. The boy woke up dazed and Hakane ran to hug him, promising she would not lose him anymore, because the life of her brother was too EXPENSIVE . Hakane thought she had defeated the creature, but it began to move noisily.
