I have lived my life chasing my dreams. Having a dream will naturally motivate you.
Dreams are not what you see, they are what you make come true. Dreams keep me motivated. No matter how old I am, I would like to create with a dream.
I draw pictures using traditional Japanese painting techniques.
Mineral pigments and hemp paper made from the blessings of nature, and animal glue
We also use glue collected from animal collagen.
The paints collected from the blessings of nature give us a sense of connection with the earth and the universe.
Paintings related to flowers and foil
I had a close friend. She worked as an illustrator.
One day, she got breast cancer and died after a long battle.
At that time, I learned that “rose” is a plant that is effective against diseases.
Even in France, famous for wine, good grapes grow in the vineyards
Let’s plant roses around it.
In this way, “roses” not only heal people’s hearts, but also seem to have the power to heal illnesses.
After she passed away, I started painting “Rose”.
“Hana” blooms without words and quietly withers.
I hope that the viewer will be happy to see such fleeting flowers blooming with all their might.
I also draw paintings that highlight human faces.
When you draw a person’s face, your taste and expression will come out.
It will be judged only by human appearance, and it will be far from the essence of art. So I dare not draw faces.
I draw the flowers that make people happy on human faces, and I hope that you can see the faces that the viewer imagines.
I think you can see the face of each individual’s thoughts in Hana.
In addition, the use of foil further emphasizes the brilliance of the flowers.
At first, I used only silver leaf, but now I use gold leaf, iris leaf, and tin leaf to match the flowers.
I want to express the fleeting flowers of life as beautifully as possible.
The image of women seen from a woman’s point of view ~Byakuya Series~
The woman I draw is myself, and it is also a common human feeling.
And from the reality that “people cannot live alone”, I draw butterflies that imagine others.
I myself am surrounded by many people, and I am established.
And the reason why it is called “Byakuya” is that “Byakuya” reveals natural forms that are usually invisible at night.
It was named with the meaning of revealing the deep psychology of women that usually does not appear on the surface.
Through female nudes, I express my own “femininity”.
Silver leaf is pasted on one side, but “silver” indicates “feminine principle”.
The naked body of a woman wriggling in it.
I think there is no language there, just onomatopoeia.
In words, I can’t express “women’s feelings”.
I would appreciate it if you could feel the true voice from the depths of a woman’s heart through my paintings.
longing for fusion
Have you ever wanted to assimilate with someone you love?
Opposites are strongly attracted to each other. S and N poles of a magnet, male and female, etc.
When I draw “longing for fusion”, I value the feeling that “something is missing”.
“One thing is missing,” people naturally seek what is missing.
That hunger becomes a longing and a desire for fusion.
It may be intense love, or it may be a mother’s love.
I came up with this concept during my graduation project.
And I realized that this feeling of hunger that “something is missing” spreads beyond the screen and into the space.
I created two large paintings, and when I was conscious of conflicting colors and shapes, I was able to create a magnetic force between the two works, and I was able to create a work that requires each other.
Currently, I draw “so” and “dense” as contradictory things in one picture.
Great art heals and enriches people’s hearts.
And that beautiful world leads people to the world of dreams, even to the universe.
I want to make people who see my paintings happy.
