This exploratory portrait series utilizes washi, a traditional form of Japanese paper. Schruder takes the textures and graphics from various washi papers and superimposes them onto the image in post-production. This project is the artist’s way of expressing how humankind internalizes globalization. It examines the interconnectedness that some North Americans experience as they appropriate aspects of Asian culture and perpetuate them throughout their daily lives, sometimes without even realizing they’re doing so.
