Bernard had a stimulating chat with Miranda when she visited the gallery recently. The earlier part of the conversation about Japanese Outsider Art is covered in a separate post. The conversation then moved on to similarities between Bernard’s mural, Captives of the Cosmic Web, and the animated films of Studio Ghibli. A snippet of the conversation is in the video clip below.
Here is a trailer for the Princess Mononoke movie she mentioned.
And another trailer in Japanese.
There is a full version of Spirited Away, also from the Studio Ghibli.
