Works mainly in Tokyo.
In this age of visual information overload, daily memories are being overwritten with speed, whether consciously or unconsciously.
From the fragments of those memories
I have created works by layering colors.
Every day, I work on layering colors.
As I continue to communicate with the painting morning and evening, it feels like a round-trip letter between myself and the artist.
A new one that I myself had not anticipated.
And yet, somehow, a screen appears that makes me feel nostalgic.
Through works that seem to mirror our daily lives, we can feel something real, even if we cannot see it.
I hope that the people who see my works will also evoke some memories and sensations.
If works of art created in this way come into existence
I think the world will become a little more tolerant.
