New Blood Entry — Hakone
Hotel Indigo / 2018
Hakone in Japan has hot spring water which can ease or even cure ailments such as poor blood circulation, body aches, neuralgia and so on. Being in Hakone hot spring while looking at the majestic views of Mt Fuji provides great relaxation. All of these unique components of Hakone can be expressed through the use of Chinese ink and Japanese paper due to their expressive power of simplicity, tranquility and energetic presence. Also I was inspired by Japanese aesthetics Wabi-sabi which means rustic simplicity and quietness: beauty or serenity that comes with age.
