Onomatopee

A book of verse that I prepared for a private exhibition with poetry and illustration which featured the theme of a sound. Our world is filled with hundreds of millions of sounds. As the “Onomatopee” of a sound of dog barking expressed differently in each country, the interpretation also is infinite. This work was produced with a hope to enjoy the “world of sound,” that is ephemeral, yet open and free. For each visual, I put together poetry and a sound that I was inspired by making them. Underneath, there are such elegance and comfort, and the profundity of the illustration in these works.
