Brilliant pigments of gold/metallic contrasts against deep ember black. All to display the focal point of chrysanthemum. Suggests traditional Japan paintings with symbol of royal Edo court while also modern in feeling. And alludes to tradition of gold leaf. On wood stretched cotton canvas.

i've been exploring colors, ideas, textures, themes of japanese art since my childhood there, and been merging it with my education of modern, western, abstract aesthetics. i majored in industrial design at the rhode island school of design, where the risd approach to all aspects of "the arts" is a major influence. the other major influence was growing up with a mother who teaches painting.
