"Tanabata" by Lissy Marlin
SIZE: 11x14 inches framed
MATERIALS: Fine Art Inkjet Print on Hahnemühle Photo Rag with Stuart Semple's Metallic Gold paint details
Tanabata, or star festival, tells the story of two lovers, separated by the milky way, who are only allowed to meet once a year on the 7th day of the 7th month. Japan celebrates this holiday by writing wishes and attaching them on bamboo trees hoping it would come true. Although I have never personally experienced this holiday in the past, I daydream of it every year and wish to celebrate it with someone special in the future. ⠀⠀
About the Daydreams collection :
"Inspired by my travels around Japan, the show Daydreams takes inspiration from the beautiful sights I've been lucky to see among the different seasons of the year and the love I feel for Japan and its culture. On this year when I feel the most static, unable to travel, I've created the pieces thinking of the past and dreaming of the future, welcoming 2021 with a brighter, more positive outlook for everyone."
