Installation at Tokyo Wonder Site, Japan, 2007 → about the project

 

I initially thought about selling the handmade mugs and bowls one by one from this project but have decided to keep them all in case I open a cafe in the future. Or better yet, for someone else opening an "art" cafe. I would gladly help you with the concept design, selecting other tableware and interior needs within your budget. I could even build shelves or suggest vegetarian recipes. *contact for consultation*

 

Cafes are important (my favorite cafes)

or see some of my own brunch

The latest series of Meaning of Making emerged from a poignant circumstance that really made me wonder about the meaning of anything. To read about, and/or become a collector of one of the 45 editioned marmalade/portraits, please visit Meaning of Making Series: Natsu-mikan (summer orange) Marmalade 2019

 

 
MUJI and Me

We make things for different reasons and purposes - at one point some may be art, some may be marchandize, and they may become something else at other points - very good

  Installation at the Canadian Embassy Gallery, Tokyo, 2008 → about the project

 

These photo-plate lithographs printed using a primary-colour separation thechnique are seriously insane to edition. (When I proposed this project to a printmaking studio, they thought it would be simply impossible) Therefore the suites of prints listed below are rather precious even though they do look like bad colour photocopies. This is the only place you can purchase them. They are "varied editions" due to the varied printing paper.  You can specify the edition number or the kind of paper when ordering; please ask about options.  A purchased print will be accompanied with a copy of the original catalogue/flyer image -- unframed. Prices range from $100 to $500 CAD . Shipping & handling is $10 world-wide.

  Installation at the Winnipeg Art Gallery, 2002 → about the project

 

The 11x17" colour photographs from this project were never editioned, and what you see here are also the originals that simply did not make it into the final 14.
Sold for $100 CAD each, unframed, but I would highly recommend a plain pine profile should you have it framed. Shipping & handling is $10 world-wide.
The life-size photo from the project is hung in my apartment to create an illusion of a bigger space.  The banister was diassembled and stored in a flat box in my friends' garage for several years. I hope they were able to reassemble and use it for their new house.
If you prefer more variety and affordability, go to Apartment Painting Project - Snaps.

Apartment Painting Project - Snaps

While painting the door and the banister in my apartment, I took over 200 photos. I printed them all in 4"x6" before enlarging the final 14 images. (These were not even digital prints -- FILM!!!) Here are the special 75 to choose from, all looking alike, but each one is "original", numbered on the back.  When you mouseover some images, comments appear which may help you select the one for you -- $20 each, unframed. Shipping is free. Please specify the desired image number(s) in the box before clicking Add to Cart button - if you are purchasing more than one, please adjust the quantity in your shopping cart.

please put the image number
