An interesting question that everyone asks at one point in their life. This series of works looks at this question, both from a existentialist point of view as well as a pragmatic one. Approximately 15 years ago it was discovered that I am descended from an Ojibwa heritage, thus making me Metis. This informations was a family secret lost for many years.
As a craftsman, I have a fascination with post-war "made in Japan" kitsch - these bizarre figurines made by the hands of some of the most traditionally skilled people in the world, became our souvenirs, mementos and trinkets. See my other blog, Kitsch Still Life.
