Heart and soul. The moment Sekijo Kaneda holds a brush, its like his blood flows through and a brush becomes a part of his hand. Sometimes it becomes a palm, other times it becomes fingers and helps him express his thoughts that he have in mind. Various of new words have been created in this modern days, but in Japanese there is a word 'iroha' which means basic in English. A Japanese song called "Iroha Song" was the origin of the word, and this song means "Just like the smell of flowers scatter in time, there is nothing in this world that will stay the same forever so without greed in such a world, lets go beyond this world". This way of thinking was written under the influence of Buddhism. This "Iroha" is a work that still exceeds the present world.

Artist Information

Sekijo Kaneda

Calligrapher Sekijo Kaneda continues to push himself ever deeper into the Japanese written language as an art form. Through each piece he find amazement with the variety of shades that a single color of ink can produce, the dynamic sense of life brought forth by a stroke of the brush and it’s fading trail, and the profound beauty of originality — once created, Japanese calligraphy can never be recreated. The theme that encapsulates his present work is to develop the relationship between the differing characters found in aged calligraphy ink versus newer calligraphy ink and the modern culture it represents.
