Purchase and Contact

My works all incorporate fragments of myself projected into my subconscious mind, reconstructed into a visual language using the motifs of flowers and animals under the concept of a “beautiful foodchain.”
I depict the beauty of nature’s providence while simultaneously expressing opposing themes in a single work, like beauty and ugliness, love and hate, or life and death.
My mode of expression has changed in the past few years from detailed renderings composed only of calculated lines to works incorporating the theme of “chance.”
Specifically, I see outlines in the random unevenness generated by sumi ink bleedings and acrylic paint mixings and build these into animals and flowers.
The works presented here were done in that method.
I am now actively showing works in Japanese and overseas venues, including solo and group exhibitions and art fairs.
