‘The Explorers’

48″ x 24″

Acrylic on Canvas

Inspired by Chinese landscape painting and Japanese mahō shōjo (magical girl) anime and manga.
The young protagonist nears a village with her feline friends.

 

 


 

 

‘Pink’

24″ x 18″

Mixed Media on Paper

Saturated to neon pink, this is a break from the monochromatic ink wash influence.

 

 


‘Moonlight Lillies’

48″ x 24″

Acrylic on Canvas

The protagonist and her fur babies meditate upon the lilly pond.  I think I feel a children’s book coming.

 

 


 

‘I Find You Interesting’

30″ x 40″

Mixed Media on Canvas

A mirror to my fascination with stylized Japanese anime characters and their big eyes.
The tilted head gives away her secret curiosity and wonder.  The mutual feeling is infinite.

‘Red Scarf’

24″ x 30″

A bit more to the minimalist approach, the manga girl is inspired by Japanese anime,
street art, and Chinese ink wash paintings.

‘Knowing’

40″ x 30″

Acrylic on Canvas

Built up in many layers of thick rough-textured paint, the anime girl realizes in a moment of stillness that something momentous has happened.
Her tiny mouth accepts that the truth is beyond words.

‘Temple of the Golden Pavilion’

48″ x 24″

Mixed Media on Canvas

This painting is a tribute to Kohei Horikoshi, Koyoharu Gotouge, and many other Japanese anime and manga artists.
I juxtaposed silhouettes with the Kinkaku-ji temple in Kyoto.

 


 

‘Satirizing the Susuwatari’

24″ x 48″

Mixed Media on Canvas

Homage to Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli films —a humorous contrast between tradition and a magical world of soot sprites.

 


 

 

‘Constantly’

24″ x 18″

Mixed Media on Paper

The answer means nothing without the question.  Is she constantly curious? Constantly a nuisance?  Constantly on edge?
The physical theories are awash in perplexities.  Simply put, Constance is dictated by the constants in nature.
Or perhaps someone is just having a good time being a kid.

 

 

 


 

 

 

‘Absence of Judgment’

24″ x 18″

Mixed Media on Paper

It’s been said that love is the absence of judgment.
This protagonist looks off into the distance, exhausted from battle, realizing for the first time that things are what they are.

 

 


 

 

 

‘Hello’

24″ x 18″

Mixed Media on Paper

A simple greeting, or something rooted in history?
