Shinji Ogawa

22 07 2012

What you have to love about Ogawa is his sense of  humor. He paints a series of famous paintings, copies of the original paintings. EXCEPT. Things are missing. Or changed. The main characters. Or most of them. Or some of them. It is as if this painting was done moments after its more famous brother.

I created a series of similar pieces in 2011. I will be epublishing them in the near future.

And for no other reason than that I like this song and keep planning to see this film.

The official trailer for director Anh Hung Tran’s adaptation of Haruki Murakami’s bestselling novel Norwegian Wood. The film opened in the UK on March 11, 2011, and in the US on January 6, 2012. The soundtrack, out now on Nonesuch Records, features an instrumental score by Jonny Greenwood performed by the BBC Concert Orchestra and the Emperor Quartet, as well as three tracks written and performed by CAN.
