We were had the opportunity to chose some of Lino‘s recent works when in Seattle, and Jim curated an amazing exhibit with the over all theme being the Kookaburra and Fuji… many of which incorporated the “fireworks murrini”… and the suspended Ala at the entrance of the exhibit were a big attraction, some of which are under consideration for various installations.


Andrew and Lino discussed the technical and philosophical aspects of the art and the artist.
