About the Item: Conjuring stories that champion absurdity and acceptance, hubris and redemption—I paint innocent observations of the human condition. Made in a process of discovery and revelation, they offer an archeology of their own creation; pentimenti belies false starts, buried metaphors, and possible diversions.

Somewhat iconoclastic by nature, my paintings yield realist’s logic to poetic insight. I use material and intellectual stimuli to explore invisible forces. With battered and scarred surfaces reflective of developing an image, I hope to resist mass-media’s dehumanized generalities to evoke our contemporary condition.

Being from Hawaii, a longtime New York City resident, with an hyphenated identity (Chinese-Japanese-American), has encouraged unique assumptions on belonging. An unstable cultural perch promotes my questioning viewpoint.
