About The Artwork

Oil and resin on silver-leafed panel 16"X16" 2015 I have lived much of my adult life transitioning from a young Japanese woman to a Canadian artist with children. Assigned roles, cultural expectations and determinants for women are vastly different in each country but the awakening of self-awareness is common to both. When it happens and how it first manifests in a child is the subject of this painting. A child gazes through a crack achieved by heated resin layers, with wisteria on silver background. The painting is done in the recess of the black stained wooden panel where multiple layers of resin were poured on top of painted surface.
