"Kept" iridescent abstract 48x48"


As I was skirting around the edge with a slate grey border I realized it reminded me of the barbed wire that was illegally placed around the 10 Japanese American Internment Camps that housed 120,000 Internees during WWII in the US mainland. My father Bacon Sakatani has been educating the public for decades while preserving artifacts and barracks and participating in the installation of memorials to remember what was being swept under the rug in US history.


This is the first of my newest abstracts reflecting on my childhood, family history, and meaningful recollections of my rich Japanese American heritage.
