April 8th - 12th

K. K. Merker Gallery, North Hall

Closing Reception on Friday, April 12th from 5-7pm

Currently, my work explores the connections between past and present, tradition and modernity, and the timeless relevance and evolution of folklore narratives. Inspired by stories of the Japanese yōkai, kaiju, and American monster culture, this work responds to how myths and fables reflect the fears of a society at a given time. My medium of choice is handmade paper pulp and handmade paper, which allows me to preserve and reimagine these stories in a contemporary context. Through intricate technique and vivid imagery, I invite viewers to embrace an exploration of monsters woven into my unique and ghastly universe.
