So...I was completely wrong.
Not Japanese artist, but a Finish artist.
Artist Maija Louekari. If you click on "textile prints," scroll right and you'll see a bunch of her cool work.
If I could read it, I think it would say that this is a gallery or store:
Marimekko Oyj Suomi
And if I were to guess again, I'd say this piece is called "Kaiku" and was made in 2004.
Who knew? I'm into Scandinavian art. This calls for a trip to Finland! (In my dreams...)
I was also reading a book of poems my mom and dad gave me last Christmas by Bill Holm called Playing the Black Piano. It's a beautiful compilation, mostly about life, and of course, death. There's a poem I read that made me think of the art, that I want to share with you in this post, but I left the book at home. So, again. This will require an update!
Sending love, world round.
