Turning Over a New Leaf

It sometimes happens that I come across an interesting artist, but I am unsuccessful in my efforts to find out anything about them. This is one of those times. When my friend JD sent me these leaf cuttings, I knew I had to share them. I did learn that the Japanese artist has ADHD, but he uses his disorder to inspire him rather than letting it get him down.

“Making positive use of the biased concentration and stiffness caused by my own ADHD (developmental disorder), I am making cutout works using leaves every day.”

  2. I do wonder how they could be preserved. Surely there is . Just goes to show you art is where you find it.

  3. This reminded me of “Big” where Tom Hanks eats that itty bitty corn as if it were a big corn on the cob. Could you picture some caterpillar chewing out this beautiful design? Oh, the talent of some people!

  4. I agree, I hope there is a way to preserve them. They are beautiful. I am not 100% sure those are real leaves, Been fooled before. Look at each one of them. A few of them have a much larger area on one side of the centerline than the other. Most leaves have the same size on each side of the center line. OK, I could be dead wrong. Hal

  5. I love the transient nature of this art. It reminds me of a sand painting – incredible beauty that is meant to bring joy, but also remind us of the impermanence of everything. Beautiful!

  6. These are charming and impressive. I don’t think I have the manual dexterity to manage such tiny and precise cuts on paper let alone on something as fragile and unforgiving as a leaf.
