Image and Body Adornment
Voyage and Return
An unidentified man sets off on aboat.
While the water is drifting, he hears child laughing mischievously and he smells the sweetness of cherry blossom.
The grass blows in the wind, he hears the rhythm of clapping game.
When the sun rises, he returns to the land where he last saw his beloved one...
Aligned with a picture and disjointed from a surface, my body of work tells a story when the image gives meaning and breathes new life to body adornment. The little girl lies and there is memory of childhood. You see the first kiss and sharing of last bite. You have made them seen and live.
