more mitsuru






sally ann,

these are images from the artist mitsuru koga's exhibition at tortoise gallery
here in venice.
they are chestnut leaves that he collects from the beach near his home outside of tokyo.
he then transforms them with an exacto knife and a needle into these tiny masterpieces.
the workshop i attended today was lovely if just for his laugh.
we didn't do any paper cutting but rather prints using leaves onto homemade envelopes.

going to roll a cigar then post the workshop photos.
