A sphinx-like allegory that plumbs the depths of physical and metaphorical surfaces, Flower hovers between straightforward narration and sublimated abstraction.
Naoko Tasaka's sphinx-like Flower
unfolds like a children's story before it
plumbs the depths of both a physical and
metaphorical surface, as straightforward
narration gives way to sublimated abstraction.
Employing a number of multi-format
techniques, Flower displays a compelling,
duelling impulse that hovers between a
grid and a waterfall.
