ORIGAMI Series

About This Project

On-going work since 2000 ORIGAMI Series is abstract composition in the Minimalist tenet. ORIGAMI Series depicts Buddhist mantra chants or sutra written text in Characters against colored or gilded surface. The work consists of bright primary color squares representing Japanese folding paper squares -ORIGAMI, hence the title for the series -.

 

Translucent fabric is folded, heat compressed, and simultaneously colored by heat transfer dye-sublimation process on the front and on the back of the fabric, achieving the simultaneous color contrast in each of the color blocks. The characteristic folds create animated forms against void, which is also a form that floats in space – emptiness.

 

Buddhist Text Heart Sutra is the subject of the Solo Exhibition at Art Life Mitsuhashi Gallery in Kyoto, Japan in November / December 2002
