Elementum: prologue
Seiko Tachibana
Art Library Rare Books Collection N7433.4.T33 E4 2010 box 1.1

Limited edition of 15 copies."The elements of my work represent everything that I see, hear, breathe, and taste. Just as each of our actions has a meaning, there is a reason why each of my lines and dots is created just so. My marks often employ circles and bars as metaphors for rain and water. Rain is about hope. It gives life to all creatures on Earth. It is an essential element in the cycle of life. The circle represents the natural duality of the infinite whole, and suggests the constant balancing forces of Yin and Yang. In living our daily lives, we are confronted with an almost incomprehensible deluge of images, and our understanding of the world around us-our reality-is largely dependent upon which of these images we choose to inform us and which we reject. We are, therefore, simultaneously enlightened and deceived about the true nature of our universe"—Artist's statement.
