Artist statement

My current works represent my discovery of Line. This is a completely original style and I could not make it without using the silver leaf which is a type of Japanese traditional art material. The rippling Line consists of contradictory aspects. It is both natural and artificial, unexpected and necessary, and eternal and temporary. Therefore, the Line makes us recognize space; co-mingling of silver reflection and the action of light. In my work, there are three fundamental motives; respect for the cultural traditions of Japan; to investigate the history of Western art (the theory and representation) from past to present; and an interest in the contemporary environment of our lives. They are mixed naturally and any of them can become the core of my works for the occasion; ultimately, they are controlled by my aesthetic sense.
The Japanese big earthquake in Fukushima the 11th in Mar in 2011 makes me create a new series of “wrapped red circle”. The circle, like the sun or the national flag, symbolizes the end of a good bond between human beings and nature.
My works depict space and emotion. When most of the viewers are walking around the room, the works will show different aspects of space and emotion.
Where, when and how it is seen gives other dimensions to the piece’ s impression, which then influence viewers and the work itself. Finally, there is my interest in the spectator who will perceive it not only optically but also from their experiences in life. I am curious about how they will judge my work.
