get thee to a nunnery We know we've been sending you up to RMIT gallery alot recently but we had to let you know about this lovely show that's travelled down from the NGA. Black Robe White Mist -which displays a collection of work by buddhist nun Rengetsu and her collaborators who hung out in the mid 1800's. She was one of the most succesful artists of her time and her poetry,calligraphy and ceramic work is much prized both in Japan and in collections around the world (our very own Hamilton Art Gallery has quite a few pieces).
Loyal readers will know the ladies of HML have quite a fondness for simple rustic ceramic work. We also have quite a taste for Sake. Shame it's off the menu for a while. We'll have to content ourselves with some green tea instead.
