Is this what we might call...

 .


...the skull-inary arts? (!)



Artist's Statement: 
{Currently, I use ceramics as my material in my method of expression, incorporating various decorative styles, patterns, and symbolic forms as my principal axis in creating my works.  The decorative styles and forms I allude to and incorporate in my works each contain a story based on historical backgrounds and ideas, myths, and allegories. Their existence in the present age makes us feel many things,; adoration, some sort of romantic emotions, a sense of unfruitfulness and languor from their excessiveness and vulgarity.And on the other hand, they make us feel tranquility and awe that can almost be described as religious, as well as an image as an object of worship.By citing such images, I feel I am able to express an - atmosphere- that is a part of the complex world in this age.In fact, the several decorative styles and forms I cite simultaneously hold divine and vulgar meaning in the present age, having an irrational quality that contradict each other, which I feel express an important aspect in the contemporary age in which we live.Also, the technique of ceramics has a tradition that has been a part of the history of decoration over a long time, and I feel the delicateness and fragile tension of the substantial material well express my concept.  -Katsuyo Aoki}

Love the skull in the first image but after reading about the artist it has less to do with Halloween and more to do with the artist style...interesting!

Hi, Marsha. Lovely to see you, as always. xo~L

Hello Debra! As always, I so appreciate your thoughtful comments. You are correct...though the images are apropos for the holiday at hand, I found them much more intriguing than just a simple decoration and did not intend to paint them in that light. I hope everyone takes the time to read the artist's statement here to understand this, but also to visit his website for many more examples of his work. ~LeAnn
