By integrating traditional Japanese ideology and sensibility with modern ideas and energy indigenous to a specific land or space, I have been painting in search for the 'something' that is hidden inside all things under the sun.
When creating, I am always conscious about the 'something' that dwells in my painting materials and tools.
According to one account, the word 'mono (something)' used to be equivalent to 'reikon (soul)' in ancient Japan.
I believe that 'reikon,' like the myriads of gods, is shapeless and exists at the core of Japanese people's fundamental sense as a spiritual support or an object of faith.
With the presence of such 'mono / reikon' at the core of my artistic philosophy, my recent series of paintings feature onomatopoeia.
