“Dance like nobody is watching.” I don’t know who wrote that but is how I feel about this artwork.

I was especially pleased when a leading bojagi master challenged me to create a piece based in Korean tradition but executed in my visual voice, a hybrid technique. “Dance” is the result. Hair flying, arms flinging, barely bojagi and mostly me, doing artwork when nobody is looking has the freedom of childhood and dance.
