JAPAN: RISING art auction and fundraiser - Tomorrow night, April 28th

For many who write on this site, and certainly many of the visitors, the culture and people of Japan are a huge influence. Japan has always been one of the first areas to take interest in my projects, and I flat out love the place.
Of course we all know about the beating the place has taken in the last six weeks and when my friend Mayumi Tatsuta contacted me about being part of tomorrow night’s JAPAN: RISNING, an auction and fundraiser for the Japan Society’s Japan Earthquake Relief Fund that she’s helped organize, it was a great chance to help in any way.
I wanted to create something specifically for the show so I made this sculpture called For Japan, a 12” by 12” piece in four wooden blocks that set together, forming a cherry-blossom accented frame around the sun of the Japanese flag.
