My latest series "Puku Puku Bubbles" encourages viewers to embrace each moment and every day in order to live with passion and peace. As a Japanese daughter of Ancient Greek and Phoenicia origins, I grew up amongst two different cultures—Mediterranean and Japanese. This series is inspired by their regional depictions of the Phoenician goddess Tanit and Japanese Dogu (meaning earthen figurines). I admire these simplistic figures for their whimsical ambiance. I believe dynamism is the key to harmony and embraced this concept in my paintings by utilizing both water-based Sumi ink and oil-based pastels on on canvas.
Space Bubbles is based on the notion that we as human-beings, have traveled a lot together to pass through the centuries. Life contains so many positive and negative things, but I hope we can continue this long journey together into the future.
