"Izanami is the creator of life and death. Together with her partner Izanagi, they created life on Earth. She gave birth to many gods and goddesses, but died during the birth of Hi-No-Kagutsuchi, the God of Fire. Her body was burned and moved to the realm of death, Yomi. Since that time she became the ruler of Yomi.
Creation and death are the two things are interrelated and complementary. Similarly, good and bad, beautiful and ugly, heaven and hell, so for me this Izanami figure is a symbol of harmony.
As a child growing up in Indonesia, mythology and mystique are a vital part of everyday life. The belief that the existence of supernatural beings from other dimensions living in harmony with human beings is generally accepted.
I was born when Japanese pop culture began to flourish in Indonesia, I’ve tried to combine these two elements (the mystical and Japanese pop culture). My version of Izanami is not living in the realm of death, but in the middle between the realm of life and death, good and evil, heaven and hell. I tried to create this middle realm. With graphic elements such as points, lines and areas I tried to form a two-dimensional paper area into the multi-dimensional space. Spaces that blends with Izanami's harmony." - Riandy Karuniawan
