fluorescent pink, gritty pigment, thick tar black, texture, drips and runs. volcanic. yes! this is from my ongoing series of coastal nature. a field, blooms, rocks. traditionally scrolls were vehicles for displaying calligraphy/painting, capturing a feeling of nature/an idea, to be hung to set a mood, & changed often to match an occasion/season. my reinvention of japanese "kakejiku" are on synthetic material similar in appearance to rice paper, but stronger, waterproof & tear-resistant, and framed, ie, hung on anodized aluminium rods along the top & bottom edges

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.
