“ The benevolently fierce blaze of the sun,
Liberating an inextinguishable cycle of life abundantly
Complex then simple as perception evolves
one life force in cosmic tango
while the benevolent sun vigilantly nourishes all. ”
To create my artwork, I like to experiment. For me, this is the simple beauty: a transition between the aggressive material which is the human life and the brightness of every human spirit. This is not just about my art process; it is also my way of life.
I believe in pure beauty. This beauty touches us and takes us into many hearts. It evokes and brings peace into minds while generating life’s dynamic energies.
My research is usually about this sense of beauty, but most importantly, it is about focusing on the hidden power of art and its immortality.
My preoccupations are tied to my perception of the universe and my interest, which began in my childhood, continues to grow on a daily basis. How come amazing forces repeatedly generate, maintain and destruct in the universe and in our life, inexorable processes with both beneficial and detrimental effects? We are ignoring the natural meanings of the universe and the essential functionalities of life and soul, transforming our daily life into one dominated by aggressiveness, stress and inward tension.
My relation to the universe deeply personal. It builds itself instinctively in my relation to space: the space of the forest, mountain, river, field and sea, and my artwork proliferates from that gestation.
The resulting artworks explore installation, sculpture, dying and weaving, painting and calligraphy, including artistic intervention which I have just recently started to discover.
I work between the terrains of modern art and tradition. My artwork is guided by my admiration of the genuine traditional art in my home country of Japan, as well as abroad. The authentic creations show and represent strength, beauty, aesthetic awareness and the very primitive senses of nature. These inspire me and give me the necessary strength to create. I am compelled to be united with them; they are indespensible to me.
Therefore my pursuits are in the hope the search for beauty will lead to simply develop our future's unique potential.
The simplicity of being is liberty.
