unbeaten by rain / solo art exhibition by Haruka Ostley
I just realized my last blog entry was almost a year ago. Since my son was born, I've been working intensely to create this exhibition. And now, here it is... after one year,
unbeaten by rain , "amenimo makezu", one of the most read and memorized poems in Japan, grounded me through my pregnancy. The poem carries a sense of stillness, peace, humility and unconditional love, which kept me going through the uncertainty of bringing new life to the world. Discovering the back story of this poem led me to create this body of work. As I enjoy the every day growth of my first child, I am once again looking around at my surroundings with fresh new eyes and taking deep breaths. Inhaling... and exhaling colors to my canvas.
