2018 ‘Life While You Wait’

Woodcut on handmade Korean paper in limited edition of 7, printed applying an old Japanese method learned from a Korean master printer, using the feet, like in a mindful dance. The series was created while embracing uncertainty as an expat artist, exploring the idea of moving from Asia to other continents. The woodblocks were carved while on vacation in Sweden and later printed  in South Korea, where I was living at the time, adding finishing details after the move to Houston in 2017.

Inspiration comes from “I don’t know” and surrendering to these humble words can open a world of possibilities.
