Art Description

Drawing: Ink, Etching on Other.

Kaonashi Girl (No-Face Girl)

This is my original etching drawing and Ink painting on a clayboard titled “Kaonashi Girl”. It is inspired by Japanese children right before adolescence, feelings that I get (I see and feel) from other people and also feeling in my inner in Japan.
This piece is not a portrait of a specific individual but rather I tried to depict something that lives in every one of us.
Kaonashi girl is rather a portrait of impression of children who are still looking for their identity. At the same time, Kaonashi, or no face means non-sef in Buddhism.

"I think no-self is another face of anatta, or "non-face", and that is why it is easy to find, feel, or experience in Japan living as a Japanese. I think Kaonashi or no face is not about our stupidity, rather it is shadow of highly interectual and emotional part of ourselves. Today's no face is new and old in history at the same time. But It is very difficult to make a portrait of it, our Kaonashi face."-N.G.

Kaonashi Girl is a series of 5 x 7 inches etching drawing I make inspired by Japanese girls.

-This is one of a kind original piece signed and title and made year on back.
-It will be sent to the buyer in a steady cardboard box from my studio in Brooklyn.
-This piece comes framed framed.
