‘un’ means ‘luck’ in both Japanese and Korean - and is a representation of my combined joys and influences from both cultures. the ‘lucky lion’ has a traditional korean lion mask for a face and wears a robe typical in japanese lion dance performances.

‘blush’ is a comment on outer vs inner feelings and responses.

submissions for the A.I.M.P.E - Awagami Mini Print International Exhibition - hosted biannually at Inbe Art Space, Japan. the exhibition is a showcase of printmakers around the world, all using traditional handmade Japanese paper.
