skin [2017]
tokyo, japan


amp cafe gallery
tokyo, japan

Skin's material was completely sourced from the street. I scavenged from construction sites, hard rubbish disposals, Japanese recycle shops and second hand stores. Work was largely born from the surrounding environment, the nocturnal lifestyle of Tokyo, and the people and relationships around me all contributed a part in their creation. Fragmented works communicate with one another through painterly languages and unified colour. Leaving the objects ambiguous for associated memories relative to the viewer.
