Hurricane lily, 2015

 

Shadow is clearer than its substance.

Healthy leaves, worm eaten leaves, and sick leaves.  Sometimes you can not tell which is which as it’s not discernible to the eye. Hurricane lily which is used for medicine as well as poison is called by one thousand names. The leaves wither to fall before its lurid red flower blooms.

 

ヒガンバナ

影は見えないものを映す

元気な葉、虫に食われた葉、病んでいても見た目にはそれとわからない葉。毒にも薬にもなり、千の名前で呼ばれる花。真っ赤な美しい花をつける前に葉は枯れて落ちてしまう。
