About Ara Hagopian's The LITERATE Show

For over thirty years, I have enjoyed drawing beautiful shapes and writing complementary stories. The imagery tends to focus on our place in the world—whomever or whatever we may be. I am influenced by Twentieth Century history—I read vintage magazines, books and letters. Inspiration comes from visualizing human achievement and personal interaction—derived from people, places and things which may be obscure, but never insignificant. My pen-and-ink THE MAGNIFICENT RECOVERY was selected by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston for their 2008 summer art auction.

    Ye gods~! I’m only the first to like this? Incredible.
    I’ve read the Sakai book through quickly and am now into it again in slow-time—so that I can think as I read, savour, appreciate.

    I very much like the image of Hatsuyo (I found myself roundly cursing Sakai for his naivety with respect to her—but he was a man of his times) and in the edition of the book I have there’s no picture of her.

    With your permission I’d very much like to use your photo of her; and with great respect I’d very much prefer to use your own imagery as above, the photo flanked by your artwork—with (or course) links back to your site.
