Love is the essence of life
Life is the essence of my art
My work reflects my everyday life,
not like a mirror does,
but like the surface of a ripping pond.
My everlasting dream is to make work that is sensual and psychic, affecting individuals and their mind, emotions, believes, and dreams. Art is like war in that it has a strong impact on the mind, only it is not destructive.
My work comes from pluralism, or something close to the idea of being between and both. It is maybe because I grew up in the fringe of Tokyo where I was surrounded and inspired by nature and urban culture.
I am interested in human behavior, actions, and habits that derive from unconscious states of mind. I am interested in human as a unique creature that lives and dies for its mind, imagination, and creations. Human behaves somewhat similar yet different from other creatures. There are things only people do, things only people share, and problems only people have. There are things only other animals do, and ways only other creatures know that sometimes I feel that perhaps we can learn from.
My work is a reflection of our innate traits that are formless and invisible and seems to be fading away.
By observing and depicting human nature at a distance, my goal is to deliver perspectives of things that are relatively unknown, unrealized, hidden, prohibited, or forgotten, but are nevertheless present within everyday life.
