The artist wearing the personal ‘ahu garment

Up through the month of August I will have a new installation at Blackfish Gallery in Portland, Oregon. This body of work features a gilded insect-eaten log, a collection of historical photographs from various Hawaiian cultural archives, 100 paper cranes, a family heirloom silk kimono, and a hand-stitched wearable ‘ahu garment.

If you have a moment to visit the gallery, please read the artist statement and the annotated list of materials — it contains important information about the piece and each of the materials involved in its making.
