About this work
In YU-ZEN, I hyphenate the word to emphasize the second half of it. On its own, the word ‘zen’ is a Buddhist school of thought originating from Taoist philosophy.
The model seems to be entirely at peace—her eyes closed and a tranquil expression on her face. A magnificent design of traditional Japanese patterns and flowers swirl and wrap around her body, melting into its curves and disappearing into the background, seamlessly blending the model with her surroundings.
