Honoring my Father

Honoring my Father

2012
In my installation, I honor my father and his life; Takuma Fujii, a nurseryman and the founder and owner of Asahi Nursery in Richmond, California. He is eighty-two years old now and retired, but he left behind a legacy that was part of our family for many years. Yet I wanted to tell this story of my dad and his life because of the love and admiration I have for him. Since childhood, I saw my dad and the nursery as one and he and the nursery became the rock of my being, my foundation. It is where I learned lessons of life amidst the beautiful flowers that were born and nurtured there.
