Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Wax, Textile, Wood and Paper on Wood.

I spent my formative years growing up in Japan, mostly in Tokyo. The city was huge, though it’s even bigger these days. But there was always order. You could hear a whisper on a packed subway car. There’s no jaywalking. Everything works as it should…in a city of 18+ million people, that's pretty impressive, and gives the city a different feel than New York for example. Anyone who has been to Japan or is familiar with the culture knows that there are layers and layers of complexity and subtleties that you discover over time. This is one of the many reasons I love Japan.

My paintings are on wood and have 3-4" edge. The painting wraps around the edges making it unnecessary to frame & enjoyable from any angle. Each work is authenticated with my "hanko", stamp or Japanese seal.
