Ozeki Keishu – 尾関圭舟 (1883-1963) – Waterfall – 滝

SOLD. THANK-YOU! Born in Nagoya, Ozeki-san was a student of Hibino Hakkei. One of his successes was being selected for the Tokai Art Exhibition in China. One of his last awards was a silver at the Gifu Art Exhibition. After WWII, Ozeki-san practiced an ancient style that used 3 large areas of negative space to break up different levels of landscape subject matter. Not only was this effective in creating a feeling of spaciousness, it allowed him to save money on paint. The importance of saving money as an artist after the war, when so many people were starving and dying of dysentery can not be understated. He also saved money by carving his own name stamp and mixing his own pigment for it. These practices lasted for many years until his financial stability allowed him to be more liberal with his supplies. Normal, fair condition (creases, toning, ageing and small stains, but still enjoyable – *if you are not 100% confident that you will be happy with the condition, please contact us for additional images or a video chat). Since this page was created, the scroll has been reinforced along the top and bottom rods using the proper imported washi repair tape. Active water is a Zen reflection of one’s energy and vitality. Waterfalls are also auspicious for wealth pouring in. Maple leaves are a Zen reminder of things that are Wabi-Sabi*After clicking on a picture, click the top left corner again to expand the images.
