All the living things including human beings, and their surroundings.
The memories of the past must reveal themselves as experiences in ordinary
scenes and non-deliberate, free creation.
My work is to find inseparable relations between lives and their environments
even though environments, time and space might only be perceived by humans.
also I want to express the harmony between artificiality and nature ; the harmony between inner and outer world ; the energy which comes out of them.
Production of my works are visually mix the material. My work is called the Digilo-graphy from its nature.
About “Digilo-graphy” Based on the data I make by scanning my own analog paintings such as drawings, collage, monotype and mixed media, I create one work through the computer. My works travel freely from anolog to digital paintings and integrate various drawing media to one work : I don't use my analog paintings on the computer for the purpose of creating mock images. I respect each characteristics of the analog paintings and when processing on the computer, I leave their material feelings and textures as traces. This computer process enables me to create unique paintings with mingled colors and complicated textures, which is inexpressible only by analog paintings. For the final output, I select the most suitable media for the data out of various printing paper, Japanese paper, watercolor paper, and canvases, then print with a full-sized pigment-based inkjet printer. “Plural Composition Work” is the way I display my works on the wall. I divide one work into several panels and make small spaces between each one of them which I accurately calculate. In this way, I hope to create“Ma”(sense of expansion and continuation) which enables one to have diversified perspectives to my work. The wall itself can function as a part of the work.“Ma”is the application of “Fusuma-e” (paintings on Japanese sliding doors, which originated in China) structure. Fusuma-e usually consists of more than four pieces of doors. In Fusuma-e structure great emphasis is put on the use of spaces which gives paintings dynamism and dimensions. The purpose of my works is not searching for a new mode of art, but giving flexibility to the frame of the art that we now have. The way I create works is also my interpretation of analog paintings from the viewpoint of digital paintings.
