Glory to the Natives
Artist: Ira Ono
Medium: Mixed Media
Dimensions (inches): 12x12 each
Living in the native rainforest of Volcano for over 30 years, I have explored and observed many native insects. The fascinating story of their arrival here on our islands is depicted in my "story collage" painting of colors and images using my Japanese past-paper techniques. It is like a vortex through time and the elements of evolution which continues from the past and into the future. Can they survive with the influx of human intervention?
