The Japanese Influences series goes forth without any Inuit Influences!
The two latest (above) are still an off shoot of the one lower right which was the first in this series on paper. The spice tone palette was achieved by using a red oxide gesso as a base layer. The bottom right one had black gesso as a base. What a difference in feel! I am weaving the Kitsune(fox) image into fragmented parts in the above while on the above right the foxes as reduced a ghostly outline. I am playing more with abstraction but still want to use imagery from myths and stories. The torii (gates) are compelling to use for layering and bring about a strong vertical and horizontal line and form.
