No endorsement or personal comments about Mitsubishi
the company nor its products here.

The majority of the boxes used in this body of work, as is
typical in all of my art, were found on the street in Osaka.

These boxes in particular were left outside in the evening
to be collected the following morning as trash.

They have not been altered in any way.
The same way in which they were bundled together and
stacked is the same way that I display them.

Of course as an artist I am very familiar with Andy
Warhol's Brillo boxes, but these boxes here are in no way
my comment or ideas about Pop Art, consumerism nor life
in America in the 1960's.

I'm not trying to pull the wool over anyone's eyes.  
They're simply old, dirty boxes that I found on the street.
Let's keep them at that. However, from an artistic point of
view, I love the blue-orange complimentary color
relationship and the amount of pent up energy contained
inside and the pushing of the boxes outward in relation to
the constriction of the blue plastic cord.

I see them as living objects and the slowly drying oil
stains and the newspapers stuffed inside will slowly
discolor over time, again showing time's effect on people
and nature.
