About "AMERICAN GUARDIAN"
 The inspiration for this lithograph comes from 17th C., (Muromachi period) Byobu painting. The image itself depicts a Japanese American incarceration camp from the vantage point of one of the guard towers that surrounded the camp. The sentry closely observes a child riding a tricycle, making reference to myself at the time of my incarceration when I was 4 years old.

The artist writes:
"This series of prints explores America's inability to distinguish between Japanese and Japanese American people. This is what brought about the internment camps of World War II. In the twelve images, different Japanese American people stand behind the barbed wire of the internment camps, while traditional Japanese figures such as costumed actors stand in front of the wire barrier."

"To most non-Asians in this country, the differences between the Japanese, Chinese and other Asian people are either indistinguishable or immaterial. During WW II this insensitivity was expressed by their failure to recognize the differences between the Japanese people and Americans of Japanese descent. Today, history is being forced to admit the gravity of this error in judgment..."

- Roger Shimomura, March 1992
