Oct.4-13,2018 Solo Exhibition (Gallery A Bientot | Tokyo)
My works focus thematically on the four seasons of Japan, particularly natural phenomena and forms, such as water and sky. Although these are figurative elements, the also contain abstract meaning, allowing an emotional interpretation through which I hope to communicate the aesthetic consciousness of Japan, along with a futuristic atmosphere.
While contemporary Nihonga has seen a growing diversity in materials, techniques, and expressions, I have tried to learn from the expressions of the form's pioneers, while also remaining conscious of the Japanese features which formed their back drop. I then aim to create works which will give birth to a new form of harmony when exhibited in contemporary architectural spaces.
