Inspired by Haruki Murakami’s book, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, an instance where an army officer is skinned alive on enemy land, this work responds to the deep pain that human kind inflicts on itself. In my sketchbook, I peeled away a layer of the paper, alluding it to the skin peeled off the human body.
