Kwaidan: Stories and Studies of Strange Things by Lafacdio Hearn is a book that has held my childhood fascination of the supernatural into my adult life. I interpreted selections of the Japanese folktales in this book through the eyes of a Japanese American growing up in Hawaii. A place where the supernatural is alive and well documented since the arrival of the immigrants in 1885. From here, I am able to present and share with you a better understanding of these folktales.
Included in this exhibition are drawings from a recent trip to Japan. A true collection of strange things.
