Hug is a series of ten wire sculptures. The heights range from 15″ to 19″. In 2016 a long-time mime friend in Japan told me she only had 3 months to live. We emailed each other almost every day from that point. I wanted so much to hug her, but the distance that separated us prevented this. Thus, the idea for Hug came to be. Sadly, she passed away the night before I was to send it. At the end of 2017, I took that Hug to her cemetery in Kamakura, Japan. Her daughter in Tokyo now has it.
