When I look at art objects, I invent a story in my mind to explain their existence. When I create work, the story crystallizes as the object or scene takes shape. My goal for all of my work is to ignite a creative spark in the viewer’s mind. With this piece, I associate the character with a Japanese Shinto-like myth. I grew up reading Japanese fairy tales and watching Ghibli movies, which gave me a glimpse of my mother’s native religion. The fantastic interactions between the spirit and human worlds have stayed with me through the development of my own spirituality.
