    The Impermanence of Flowers Makes Them More Beautiful

    Mayuko Ono Gray’s current exhibition, The Impermanence of Flowers Makes Them More Beautiful, is a series of small to large-scale graphite drawings on paper, tracing the evolution of Ono Gray’s artistic path—from Japanese calligraphy to her strong interest in the existence of the physical body.

     

    By referencing Japanese proverbs as well as her own poems, Ono Gray intertwines Japanese characters to create a single line and contemplatively weaving images of persons, animals, and still life drawn from her familiar experience.

     

    Whether through the literary artifacts of traditional proverbs, or through personal expressions in poetry and pictures, these word-images are reflections on human nature, place, self, ephemerality, permanence, and universal wisdom. Simply stated, these drawings are expressions of a unique perspective, where East and West combine.
