4.5'x5', sketchbook covers, cut up drawings, washi paper and photocopies, 1994
When the artist came to Japan, he expected a simplifying experience; the lone tea bowl, a mountain fading in mist. Instead there are traffic jams and houses overflowing with toys and gadgets.
This complexity shows in his collages made by cutting up his own drawings. Each drawing was a sonata, a personal experience, a “private part”. Now they become something richer, symphonies.
