For my solo exhibition in Tokyo October 24. I will put forth works that are inspired by the Elements; Earth, Water, Air, Fire. The power of nature and fragility of humans and life are my inspiration. As a poetic response to the aftermath of the March 1 1 Earthquake and Tsunami. I will like to put forth meditations on Nature and the Elements. I will put forth an installation of metallic skeleton leaves, metal wall works and a kakejiku to create a quiet, contemplative space in Galerie Sho. I hope to pay homage to those who were lost and all those who were affected by the recent tragedy. I hope to evoke transcendence and strength of human nature in my works and express the beauty in all things being ephemeral.
