Theme 2: Everyday Life in the Tree of Life

This group of work describes life in the world of Tree of Life. 

これらの作品は私が想像した「生命の木の世界」の物語から

"Hunting for the Giant Snail", 50"x38"x13", 2009-2010,

"Everyday Scenes from Leaves and Branches of the Tree of Life" (slide show)

Slide Show: each of these work consists of sculpture, drawing(s),and a very short story. Everyday Scene works differ from other works of mine in that they are commentary rather humorously  told (according to many viewers) on various subjects such as politics, religion and culture.

The Tree of Life in my conception is immensely huge; not as much of a real tree as an analogy for the universe. Characters were created in these pieces describing life in this imaginary world.
