The night sky has inspired a new series called “Indra’s Cosmic Net.” Fascinated by the interconnectedness of all formations: large as the universe, and small as cells, I have been using the long fibers of mulberry paper to create cells and “draw” in a new way. These new works are part of the Luminosity series. I will also show prints and paperworks of Kyoto. All are welcome.

Please join me for a show of works relating to Kyoto at the Ren Brown Collection, Bodega Bay California. The show will include new luminescent paperworks of the night skies, as well as a selection of paintings done in 1980-81 the first two years I was in Kyoto. These works were recently unveiled in a box inside the studio, and this is the first time they will be shown. The gallery is north of San Francisco on the Coast Highway.
