My recent travels to Japan have inspired this series of prints. I was drawn to the tranquility of the temples and the carefully curated landscapes surrounding them. Using numerous layers of screen printing, I have built up a painterly image to convey the stillness and beauty I found there. Gold leaf has then been applied to the prints, as it is applied to the temples themselves, to purify and protect them from negativity.
