Fish Market

While living in Japan and shopping at the local fish market, I became fascinated by the thin pieces of Japanese cedar on which our fish purchases were placed before being wrapped.  Later I purchased bundles of the cedar pieces from a wholesale vendor at the Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo which provided material for this series of works.  For me, the nuances in the wood suggest the light found on the water, the ripple of the stream, and the hint of a fish gliding by.
