Boom, Boom, Treasure Hunters 2007-2011

Boom, Boom, Treasure Hunters are part of a series of paintings and ink drawings that document the preponderance of abandoned boats, forlorn vessels, orphaned vehicles and stranded objects that were found – and often illegally dumped – throughout Tokyo harbour, Nagoya rivers and the beaches of Chiba, Japan. Boom, Boom, Treasure Hunters are the keepers of memories. They are the outcome of a search for the spoils from the wreckage of forms that appear all around us. Collecting them presents a new whole.
