Paper pulp allows me to create lightweight wall or standing sculpture. Each has an armature on which layers of paper pulp are added. I may use 20 layers of paper pulp to get the result in texture or smoothness I am striving for.
Having been a martial arts instructor for over 35 years, I learned kanji characters as part of my studies. I paint Kanji characters on wood panels or canvas. I am drawn to the lines, circles and curves of Kanji symbols which convey meanings.
