After the passing of my mother in November 2016 I began painting a series of death-centric images inside the Japanese myth of Shinigami.
Shinigami is a Japanese myth that began as a direct influence of the Grim Reaper from Western culture. In this series I’ve re-imagined them as courtesans of a 1920’s opium den who exist in the space between life and death, conducting the transmigration of the human soul.
These paintings are a requiem for my mother.
