Nakatani Suisen

Born: 1946

Hometown: Japan

Lives and Works: Japan

 

Suisen Nakatani (b.1946) is a Japan based calligrapher. The motifs of her artworks are Kokotsu-bun; the ancient Chinese hieroglyphic characters left on bones or tortoise carapaces and Kin-bun; those left on bronze vessels.

Suisen’s fluid forms with Sumi ink express a subtle intelligence and energetic resolve that maintain a correspondence with the art’s ancient practice even as they communicate a contemporary energy and vital force. Suisen says she can feel a lot of energy from ancient characters that imply the meaning of life, nature, and people’s feeling in ancient times. Therefore, she is fascinated with ancient characters and practice calligraphy to affirm her life, including both the sadness and happiness of her experience.

She was given several awards both in Japan and abroad.
She also held her solo exhibitions in Tokyo, Yokohama, Kamakura (Japan), Bangkok (Thailand) and New York (USA).
