suggestive of traditional japanese paintings with a symbol of imperial edo. brilliant pigments of metallic gold contrasts against deep violet to display the focal point of a chrysanthemum

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.
