“By borrowing from long since ennobled traditions of mass media such as altar pieces, tapestries and ukiyo-e prints, i hope to interpret the tensions of the contemporary “floating world.” Toward this end I provide frames of an immediate history…. These are spaces filled with … images of fleeting pleasures such as sexual love and beauty, discontinuity and dissonance; unfinished acts, abruptnesses and illogicalities.”
