Rui Matsunaga

Matsunaga's works are fused with a multitude of references from ancient magics, animism and anime that all lead to a meditative sense of our universal human condition. Another perspective to seeing Matsunaga's works are that they are rooted in the Japanese background of a post nuclear bombed society and the cultural impact of that in relation to nature and fiction. They draw inspiration from mythology, folklore, popular culture to reflect an increasingly technologised world where a new spirit of mind raises a range of questions to our relationship with nature, the unseen world of the magical and the spiritual.
