Luke Hardy has just returned from another trip to Japan. This time his current project has sent him to northern Japan (Hokkaido). It involves foxes, known in Japanese legend for their propensity to possess and beguile. He has been gathering material to digitally incorporate into seductive slightly disturbing images suggesting reincarnation and arcane ceremony. All of Luke’s work contemplates the thin line between the spiritual and the sensual, while alluding to Buddhist and Hindu ritual.
