Exhibition in Gallery Zava Tokio, Japan.9:02:00 PM
In this second time that I've traveled to Japan,
now settling in Tokyo, I was deeply amazed
by the beauty of its cherry trees. I went to a
river and walked through Nakameguro Meguro
while surrounded by the majestic cherry trees.
The wind swayed their branches, dropping the
petals to into the river, and the soft scent of the
cherry blossoms filled the air. The image of the
cherry blossom trees was etched in my mind and
in my heart, keeping alive the memory of that
beautiful day. For me, Hanami is poetry; all this
beauty inspired me to create a collection of paintings.
I imagined a beautiful hummingbird celebrating
Hanami and designed the Cherry Hummingbird as
fantastic and beautiful as the cherry trees are. In my
home country, Uruguay, the Uruguayan "colibri" is
considered a divine being with magical attributes.
