This piece is from my "Exquisite Corpse" collection. The collection is a double entendre deriving from the collaborative poetry game of the Parisian Surrealist Movement and the beauty in the human bones in this print.
"Sakura Skull" was inspired by the cherry blossom flowers surrounding the skull. I meant for this part of the series to nod to Japanese culture. I highlight a diverse range within this collection. this happens to be one of my most favored pieces in the series.
I have a new studio/gallery in East Lansing, MI that is open for each first Sunday gallery walk. If you're in town or want to make a special visit email me for an appointment. The gallery currently showcases all of my own art.
