« IT’S NOT THE OBJECT THAT MATTERS, BUT WHAT IT SAYS ». TADASHI KAWAMATA, ARTIST
Totems were traditionally used to recount stories about families and clans and to keep a record of important historical events. I borrowed this symbol for my own history and looked to nature for inspiration.
Because we have so many experiences through life, we live in various emotional states. Our souls are like mosaics, and my pieces express the complexity of our humanity, our spirituality, in search of answers, through an interplay of materials, textures and colors that, once assembled, convey a different emotion for the individual who contemplates them.
