Wk8 – Artist Interview – Kiyomi Fukui

plant

This artwork is pretty interesting because it has to do with life. For his art work, he showed soil everywhere on a desk with little plants coming out. In my perspective, the little plants symbolize life, while the soil symbolizes what helps the plant grow in it’s cycle.

Fukui talks about life and death. How death means that life comes to an end, but also keeps another life cycle going. He shared a story about the time he came across a bird while it was dying and how he watch the bird pass away. Although it was just a bird, it still made me a little sad, because I’ve experience someone pass away. I rather not share the story on social media, but if you talk to me in person, I would probably share it.
