This year 2020 Seattle Tacoma Airport selected 15 artists in total such as Lauren Boilini, Jason Hunt, Soo Hong, David Hytone, Jennifer Zwick and Naoko Morisawa etc.
About the artwork:
– Image of Target : Set the Target clearly and focus on it to live life better.
– There are other backgrounds/ mathematical art in presentations for this artwork.
– Image of mysterious number Pi: I tried presenting a never ending number of Pi (3.14xxxxxx) and the mysterious energy in visual art. The line in the artwork shows the continuous number going beyond the wooden board.
– MLB Player pitcher’s Target – Strike Zone etc
Wood is an important component in my art. The life of a tree and the energy in each grain of wood is why I use wood. My artwork is hand-made of thousands of very small slices of natural and oil-dyed wood cut on board. I like to incorporate the patterns in the wood and enhance them with oil-stain. The variety of wood grain is very beautiful and the pattern is never the same. The combinations of natural and oil-stained grains create interesting shadows and impressions. When seen from a distance, my artwork looks like a painting. The details of the work and mosaic technique slowly emerge when the viewer comes closer. By using wood mosaic I can show life and energy.
I am currently developing a new body of work using other materials such as paper, cardboard in addition to wood mosaic art-form, for example such as this work – New Wave Target Forever.
