STATEMENT

I am in search of universal forms that can be traced from ancient times to the future.

The flowing shapes of clouds, the unevenness of stones, the lush forest, the expressions and gestures of living things, and all the phenomena of nature are my sources of creation. 

I believe that creating is like an adventure that can transcend time and place without the constraints of convention.

 

 

私は古代から未来に通じる普遍的なフォルムを探究しています。

雲の流れる形、石のでこぼこ、木々の生い茂り、生き物の表情とその仕草、自然の中の全ての現象が創造の元になります。創造することとは慣例の束縛も受けず、時間も場所も超えられる冒険のようだと思っています。
