Shi is Shin, it is the sacred letter of the Kabalistic alphabet, it is teeth... When a body is dilapidated and destroyed, only teeth remain. It's a transformation. Like the Indian goddess Kali, with her eternal hunger, the artist consumes the world of the sensual for the spiritual. Shin is fire, consuming everything in its path but bringing liberation. Cynicism, Denial of Standards, Irrationality, Disappointment and Fascination with the otherworldly - ALL these become the creator's palette.
