Purchase and Contact

From my university days, I have explored “narrative quality” and “decorativeness.”
I want to make works that are more than just beautiful depictions, I want to make works that inspire the viewer to imagine and contemplate.
And I want the viewer to encounter a fantasy experience. Particularly in recent years I have been exploring fantasy world and mythological themes in my work.
Originally I depicted animals that exist in the real world.
But out of a desire to further intensify the sacredness and to paint without being restricted by realism, I began to paint fantasy creatures made up only of whatever shapes I felt like using.
I am exploring the process of attempting to beautifully depict my own unique “illusionary worlds” that only I can depict.
