Works

My works are an attempt to blend a fine arts sensibility with decorativeness.
The women that I depict are meant to reflect the style of anthropomorphizing abstract phenomena in Japanese and Greek myth.
This practice has been a part of polytheistic faiths from ancient times, and I feel that it naturally infuses modern Japan as well.
I am exploring this long-lasting practice because it can transform the abstract elements in my own heart into art that is universal to everyone.
Also, the coloring from natural pigments unique to nihonga produces many different kinds of effects when applied to the materials.
I want to continue fusing these elements of decorative beauty and fine arts conceptualization, and continue producing in a new style within the tradition of "bijin-ga."
