Art: UNSHEATHED by Artist C. k. Agathocleous
Yosa Buson (1716-1783) was a great poet who was also a
distinguished painter. He is known as one of the
masters of the haiku. His poems are visually intense
and they are in love with color.

A field of mustard,
no whale in sight,
the sea darkening.

Blown from the west,
fallen leaves gather
in the east.

Autumn evening-
there's joy also
in lonliness.


UNSHEATHED was painted in the same same spirit - in
appreciation of the aesthetics of the haiku. The idea
that the most intense experience can be condensed in to
a few critically important words, or lines, or colors
and by experiencing them become all the more meaningful.
