Below are Install and opening night photos with a custom made Katana inspired by Miyamoto Musashi at the center of the wall Installation.
Miyamoto Musashi was a master Japanese swordsman and philosopher. He was also an accomplished artist, sculptor and calligrapher. He emphasized in his writings the importance of study in multiple disciplines.
I placed the katana at the center of this installation as an homage to him and to reflect the shared belief in the value of training in multiple disciplines (as an artist) to further develop the self.
