The Japanese tradition of painting on gold-leaf such as works from the Rimpa tradition and the flamboyant gold paintings from the Edo period, pictures of the "floating world", serve as inspiration. And in this series of works - Celestial Bodies I have extended my interests from creation mythology to looking at the cosmos - the celestial canopy of constellations and universes that for all time inspire a wondering in the consciousness of mankind.
