Flower in the burning-house 3 by NikiAndo Flower in the burning-house 3 by NikiAndo
2016, pencil on paper, A5.

This is a third artwork in "Flower in the burning-house". Original Japanese title is "Kataku no hana 3". "Kataku" is a Buddhism term which means "burning-house", it is a metaphor of this world filled with sin and desire. "hana" means "flower".

This drawing was sold in a solo exhibition in Odawara.

a beautiful series…your drawing seems to reach a new level here, and these flowers take on a curious, almost animalistic character, like they could bite…..it is all so deeply evocative, dreams, nightmares, human history, reality.

Because I used a little more expensive paper...no, just a joke :P
This was the first time I drew sunflower before blooming. I'd been making sunflower-series with only witherd flowers before this one. I found sunflower before blooming has mysterious power which are not in full-bloom and also witherd.
I think it is one of reasons that this artwork reached a new level.

I like the joke…but then paper is important! I think in Japan you have a lot of wonderful paper for drawing, paper that is beautiful even before anything is drawn!
Yes, I see now, you catch the sunflower just at that moment - potential beauty, waiting to emerge.
I hope you have the time and patience to continue this series!:)

I like how the flower seems to look steadily forward, a little hint of dignity.

This is the only sunflower before the blooming in my sunflower series. I guess it is one of the reason that this sunflower seems to look forward steadly.

Thanks a lot! 2016 was the first year that I held two exhibitions in one year. It was a very fulfilling year but I was exhausted in all the holidays --from Christmas to New year. haha
