This work’s title means spring dawn. Whenever I think of a spring dawn, I remember an old Chinese poem by Meng Haoran.
- In spring, I fall into a sleep so deep that I don’t notice the dawn.
- When I wake, there are birds singing here and there.
- Thanks to a storm in the middle of the night, it seems flowers are scattered everywhere.
In this painting, the cherry blossoms don’t fall but are beautifully in full bloom. However, if we become aware of this title, we cannot but imagine a storm might come. Therefore, we feel the transience of the cherry blossoms more strongly, and our hearts are captured. Keiji Sasaki considers even a title a part of the artwork, and makes this title play an important role; It makes us see this work from a different angle. Keiji Sasaki is a very imaginative painter, and this work is very impressive.
