I have come to the understanding that art is the ultimate expression of humankind, be it through music, painting or poetry, art is the medium through which we pull back the veill to expose one's true feelings & viewpoint. It has conveyed our ideas and emotions throughout the ages and helped us to understand so much about this incredible thing called life!
How blessed we are to smell the ocean breeze, to witness the changing of the seasons, to stand on top of mountains, to observe the beauty of fauna and flora, to experience the tranquility of the woods. We are merely sojourners. This sculpture marks a new chapter in my life and professional career and I would like you to join me as I explore this new world.
The free form and flowing lines of the sculpture signify how we move throuhg life and the highs and the lows can only be appreciated when both are experienced. It is only when you put these together that the beautiful rhythm of life becomes a thing of beauty.
I have chosen the name ikigai after the Japanese philosphy which can be intepreted as, "the reason for which you wake up in the morning" or " finding joy in life through purpose."
