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. "Up and down" was originally one of the cardinal direction, and it is used mainly for the direction of force (such as height and depth). The correct vertical direction is defined for each letter, and all of the letter is aligned in a specific direction. Normally "up and down" can not be defined in a weightless environment, but it is expressed wonderfully by the harmony of ink and the brush.

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.
