Johanna Tagada, ‘Le Silence de L'Amour: La Protection’, 2016, Tappan

Created a reflection on Shibui and part of Association Shop's (USA) publication and reflection on the topic. This series was created along with additional paintings. "This sculpture unlike my others as a more "rough" aspect," explains Togada. The modular sculptures derive directly from her paintings and the idea of "play."

"When exhibiting these pieces I encourage visitors to touch them, bring them together as families, allowing the mind to rest," she says.

The sculpture comes without a cotton play mat.
