About works / performance

The motifs I’m painting are things that I see in my daily life, and I paint them based on physical sensations and memories.I am exploring the existence of shapes and sceneries, that are the base of what each person sees when they are standing in front of a painting. My paintings are based on the rural landscapes of the fields, paddy fields, and mountains of the prefecture of Gunma, where I was born and raised. I construct a painting balancing the shapes, colors and sizes of the still lifes, people, sculp-tural motifs and ancient tombs, that I arrange.They are not meant as a reproduction of a certain 3-dimensional situation.Through the relation, that is being born out of mixing different things and times on one plane, the painting, I establish them as a scenery accompanied by a sense of distance and scale.
