This piece is for a group show at the Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles called "EAST/WEST". The gallery works with a number of Asian artists as well as American artists, and this show is specifically meant to mix Eastern/Western traditions from various different perspectives. As many of you may know, I travel to Asia fairly frequently. I have some family who have originally come from Japan and we enjoy visiting there whenever we can. (Also I really dig Tokyo DisneySea, hehe, and always like a good excuse to go there!) Japan has such an exciting number of mythological animals - one of which is the Kirin (sort of dragony-unicorny-giraffe). I've included a Kirin in my painting here, wrapped around a shamisen (traditional Japanese instrument). My nephew is named "Fox Kirin" - so as kind of a familial nod, I am painting an Inari fox shrine in the background (it's actually a specific shrine I have visited on multiple occasions.) Another delightful mythical beast in Japanese folklore is the Bakeneko (monster cat, similar to a Nekomata or other Yokai - ish kitties!). For the most part, they tend to look like regular cats, but if you look closely they have two tails (or a forked tail, depending on who you ask, and depending on whether they're being lumped in together wtih Nekomata). Japan is full of cats, mostly in my own experience I see tailess or bob-tailed cats there, I haven't seen a two-tailed one yet, but I always keep an eye out ;)
