“Pacífico,” Individual Show in Kuzumaki, Iwate Prefecture, Japan

Pacífico: the ocean that connects Japan, Mexico and the US. Eighteen years ago, I taught English for two years in a small town in Iwate Prefecture, Japan. Once again, I cross the grand Pacific to revisit my past. The sea can also be cruel and devastating, where Iwate was hard hit in the 2011 Tohoku Tsunami; I pay homage to the tremendous loss. Pacífico means peaceful, which we all hope for in the world and within the three countries that I consider to be home.
