This is Artaxis member, Shoji Satake's work. He says, "As an immigrant, my work embodies my constant struggle to blend my Japanese heritage with my American upbringing. This dichotomy seeks to create a harmonious existence between two distinct forms that can only exist together, a flower-like object and a stone-like base. By interpreting these two unique cultures as a singular object it allows me to ascertain the universal journey of self-discovery."
