About works / performance
I make lithographs as a place to collide various two powers; landscape and observers, illustrations and realism images, nature and artificial objects, etc.. These powers collide with each other, cancel each other's forces on the surface of litho-plate. I take a walk around the city, found something; strange objects and great landscape, get inspiration from it, and combine fragmentary images to create a flat image.
On the surface of a lithography plate, I try to reproduce the dissipation and integration of recognition that I took a walk.
