FROM THE ARTIST:

I’ve always loved sushi. Something so simple, yet so complex in flavor and texture. It’s probably my favorite food because of its simple complexities, but also because i’m a fan of variety. It’s truly the one food that has it all. 

I knew when planning the Favorite Things Series, that Sushi would have a spot. I wanted a graphic style for this piece in-keeping with the nature of sushi, thus the clean, contrasting colors I chose for this piece.  Janine and I collected menus, chop stick wrappers and the like for what seemed like forever, so when you’re discovering all the bits and pieces in the paper, you’re sharing a meal with the two of us.
