Here's what one collector has written about our Kitty Sushi:I saw Neko wa Nigiridesu and I was moved: the work is immaculate. A piece of salmon sashimi, the light playing off of the translucent orange glass which is threaded through with bright white opaque marbling. It glistens in mouthwatering facsimile to the fish of its inspiration. This sashimi sits on a small mound of white rice, brightly shining white, at once sushi and neko, a fluffy white cat with big kawaii eyes. The cat’s expression is one of jovial contentment. As I lose myself in its deceptively passive gaze I am drawn into the existential quandary that is Neko wa Nigiridesu. As a cat, according to its nature, Neko must desire the fish, it is so close yet unobtainable. If the nigiri were to fall, the Law Of Universal Irony dictates that it must fall fish down, casting the most delicious and desirable part into the dirt. The fish however, is the back of the cat, whose instincts demand that it land on its feet. Neko wa Nigiridesu must tumble infinitely, or never rotate at all. It is a being at war with itself, placid kawaii eyes all that it can show the world, unable to express a yearning, a weave of instincts that it cannot unravel. We are all Neko wa Nigiridesu. Neko wa Nigiridesu is us, tumbling infinitely through a universe bent in forcing us to consume ourselves. I have been deeply moved by Neko wa Nigiridesu, and I commend your art, and your vision as an artist.
