Artist Motoi Yamamoto: Motoi forged a connection to the substance of salt while mourning the death of his sister, at the age of 24, from brain cancer. He began to create art out of salt in an effort to preserve his memories of her.

Salt is the traditional symbol for purification and mourning in the Japanese culture.

Thank you so much to Ted Anderson for this Spotlight! With much appreciation!
