Susu & Watari

mixed media on panel
12 x 12 cm 2020

Susu and Watari are Japanese dust bunnies. They roll around in your house, they sleep under your bed, snuggle up in corners and nooks. They appreciate and even applaud sloppiness. They feel too much dusting, vacuum cleaning, cleansing and wiping is a sin and a waste of time and energy.

SUSU and WATARI are the guardians of time, life and love. Their greatest reward is to watch you grow, evolve and live your life. They feel dust, scratches, scars, wrinkles, baldness and general decay, flaws and defects are the trophies of life. They are proof and witness of the most valuable thing we are given, time.
