A pool of blood-red fabric explodes from the pelvic area of a billowing blue dress, which is armless, headless and backed by painting of a flaming nimbus. Shoko Maemoto said this is what she felt one night last year, when she visited Bali during a local festival and found herself running around with abandon, in the dark. No social commentary is intended, she said, by the work of art.

Americans have the feeling that Japan is swiping our car market, annexing our downtown real estate, cornering the market on electronic gadgets and buying up all the luxury trinkets on Rodeo Drive.
