“Art is created to appeal to our common humanity, which transcends all race and ideology. A work of art belongs to the artist while painting, but when it is finished, it leaves the artist’s hands and becomes the property of all humankind. This is what makes public art so powerful. The work I created for Shofuso House belongs to the people of Philadelphia. I hope they will continue to cherish it.– Hiroshi Senju”

INTERVIEW: HIROSHI SENJU
The internationally acclaimed artist speaks passionately about his views on art.
Inspired by the calmness of moving landscapes, Hiroshi Senju enlightens with Zen musings.
This wide-ranging exhibition examines the phenomenon of globalization where cultures are colliding and melding as never before through the work of forty-four painters, sculptors, photographers and installation artists who are exploring the notion of cultural boundaries. These emerging and established artists—who come from a vast geographical landscape stretching from the West to Asia to Africa—share a truly global perspective, both in their physical existence, living and working between cultures, and their artistic endeavors.
Japanese master Hiroshi Senju’s Falling Water series of paintings is showing at Sundaram Tagore Gallery and Art Stage Singapore.
For me, it is a testament of courage and class when a gallery chooses a solo show for an art fair. Most booths are full with a cacophony of artists, some well curated, others not, but the vast majority are from a group of artists. After all, fairs are places to sell and more artists attract more buyers.
So, when I discovered Whitestone Gallery from Tokyo tucked away at the back of Abu Dhabi Art with a gorgeous solo show from Hiroshi Senju, I knew I would be giving them coverage.

藝術，是一種由藝術家要犧牲自己的生命，身不由己地傳達這些自己也不甚明白的，高於人類標準的 "美" 因此，藝術是關乎 "感召" 。
這是為什麼千住博被公認為日本國寶級藝術家, 他的 "瀑布" 系列、以半寶石、珊瑚、貝母、動物皮膠混合的傳統日本畫礦物顏料、毛筆（以至噴筆），將當日在原始森林受水靈洗滌一新的感召經驗，一次又一次寫在桑皮紙上。
Inspired by the beauty of waterfalls, Japanese artist Hiroshi Senju speaks with Hong Kong Tatler about his passion to create beyond nationality and embracing art as a global practice.
Japanese painter Hiroshi Senju is best known for the serenity of his large-scale waterfall paintings that he has made since 1990. His recent cliff paintings that he has developed since 2007 articulate both artistic and metaphysical tension.
The exquisite works in Hiroshi Senju’s series “Cliffs,” 2012—eleven mixed-media paintings, one triptych, all on mulberry paper mounted on board—appear to illustrate Lao-tzu’s idea of Tao as a sort of universal flow or elemental flux informing all things.
"Humans need to commune with the elements of nature and art at its best can provide such an experience of communion. Artists often reflect on nature and transform it into intensely condensed metaphors, poems, and songs.Through his sublime paintings, Japanese artist Hiroshi Senju has contemplated multiple facets of water, especially its fundamental power, for almost twenty years [...]n essence, he transforms solid materials from the earth to create images of elusive aquatic torrents."
Art historian Sundaram Tagore's doctoral thesis looks at Indian artists' response to European modernisation from the 1940s to 1980s. As a curator, however, his focus is more on the here and now. Hence the title of his gallery's latest group exhibition by 18 international artists, which opens today at the Sundaram Tagore Gallery's Hong Kong branch.
And Finally, after being interested in the sky, I discovered the waterfall. I felt something clicking as if I recognized some kind of DNA that I had in me, like a past memory. I find that a lot of people whether they are Europeans, Americans or Japanese have similar feelings towards waterfalls. I find that these emotions go beyond the boundaries East/West, or old/new. Once I understood what art was all about and that art should go beyond people's boundaries, it was very important for me to further explore that path.
"...Senju creates, from the most simple of low-tech means, cinematic spectacles that appear to be in motion. They are startlingly beautiful works - perhaps too beautiful, since we tend to be wary of beauty - and raise the question of optical trickery, although the trickery is completely transparent..."
