Whereabouts of God #23 is Hikari's first print on wood, depicting a horned-child donning a starry scar. The painting first made it's debut in her exhibition at Corey Helford Gallery earlier this year, Memento Mori. "Whereabouts of God" is an onoing series begun after the Great East Japan Earthquake and accident of Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant occurred in March 2011. The scars shown on the characters' necks represent a sort of 'Chernobyl necklace.'
Hikari shares, "No one knows if Fukushima’s children will wear a similar 'Fukushima necklace' in the future or not, and the possibility shouldn’t be ruled out. So, I painted these scars as warnings about the future, while the twinkling stars around the scar represent my personal, happier wishes for our future."
