Escape to Japan

acrylic, cardboard, and toilet paper on canvas

24"x36"

2010

 

The working title was "Homage to Japan" but Escape sounded better, not to mention more in tune with my state of mind. I've been planning a long term escape to that country for a very long time and I can feel the pressure building to get over there.

I think this piece could go in with my sigil series as it is attempting to set forces in motion.

I thought the piece of cardboard looked like an old stone with early Japanese writing carved into it...but it was the box for a Roomba!

There is a lot of Jasper Johns influence in this one.
