Haruka Misawa - Paper Flower, 2014Artist’s statement:“Sharpening my pencil, the pencil shavings presenting an arrestingly beautiful form. Curled up in a ring-shaped crown, they looked like the petals of a flower.

I printed BIOTOPE GA-FS paper with a color gradation, applied paste to the surface, wrapped it...

Jaimy Gordon passed through my field of vision some time in the early 1980s, having published a book with one of my favorite presses, Burning Deck (which subsequently published a chapbook of mine).
