「 FRENCH SENSITIVITY FOR JAPANESE CALLIGRAPHY
An international student exhibits at Kanazawa Fine Arts School


Charlotte Tournet (26), who studied abroad as part of the twinning between the Fine Arts School of Nancy (France) and Kanazawa, made an exhibition at the Fine Arts School of Kanazawa on July 7th (supported by the local newspaper 北國新聞社). She presents about fifty pieces, dealing with a sensitive calligraphic research Franco-Japanese.
In Nancy, Charlotte studied the technique of French calligraphy, or how to trace beautiful, perfect letters. She arrived at Kanazawa in April, and practiced Japanese calligraphy while interacting with calligraphy artists.
In the exhibition, many works have shown unreadable words by their graphic deformation, notably "雷" (thunder) which embodies Kanazawa's deepest image for Charlotte, traces with a very strong line that leaves a big impression, similar to lightning.
Charlotte says "For some work I did dozens of tests before finding the right one. If I can touch people's heart who see my drawings, that's the most important."
Her friend Tomoko Kondo (Kanazawa Fine Arts School Master 1) also collaborated.
In mid-July, Charlotte will leave Kanazawa at the end of her 3-month exchange. 」
