One of my dreams is to travel to any of the Asian countries and experience the art, culture, and food. I also like the Asian language of Kanji symbols. I love the elegance of the Kanji characters that many of us Americans have a fascination with. Kanji characters are often seen in tattoos. My interest in Kanji has led to creating the Kanji Zen Art series of works.
Each piece in the series features a Kanji character on word paper. Under the paper are a double layered golden orange and dark red layers. Elegant elements like swirls and leaves are mixed in. Each piece is calming and mysterious. I wanted to create a Kanji art series that had a vintage-inspired feeling but would fit in the modern world.
There are eleven Kanji characters in the series: Beauty, Brave, Destiny, Dream, Energy, Friend, Health, Longevity, Love, Luck, and Peace.
