Sabbatical in Japan

In August I’ll travel to Osaka, Japan where I’ll be an artist in residence at the Osaka University of Arts till January. Hiroshi Yamano has extended this opportunity to me and I’ll be working with Etsuko Niishi. I’m looking forward to catching up with past students and colleagues of mine while there as well as developing a new body of work. My colleague Rich Tannin a professor in the Wood Program at RIT and I will travel for two weeks in Japan and plan to visit Ise Jinga, Kyoto, and Isamu Noguchi’s studio in Mure.
